I am a Colombian America born in Cali Colombia. I came to the states at 8 years old and starting writing poetry at the age of 15. Since the age of 10 I began learning how to play percussion instruments in a church in Middletown ny. Since the. I have learned how to play the conga, bongoes, djembe and drum set. I have toured the country about 3 times with 3 different tours with the Readnex Poetry Squad and several times in Europe, South America and places like New Zealand . I dabble between being vegan, vegetarian and some times pescatarian. I love to dance, Latin dance, house dance and b-boy. I have been writing and rhyming poetry and Hip Hop for 20 years and have been teaching a creative writing workshop for 5-10 of those years. I love my family and great company
