After a botched suicide attempt in 2011 I went on a quest to find happiness. During the start of the quest, I spent several months studying as a monk under an Archbishop. My time there taught me a lot and I came to understand that life is about the acquisition of skills.
When I left the kellion, I started to work on life skills. I found a passion in design and have been working on my skills in the design field. Prior to my time at the kellion, I started to learn how to perform poetry. I have been writing poetry since abut 2004, but didn’t start to share until 2014. The first few years were rough, to say the least, but I struggled through.
My first big break in performance came in 2015 when I performed for the Risk! Podcast at the Blue Bird Theatre in Denver Colorado. I bombed. Like… Bad.
It took several months before I took the stage again, and have since been perfecting the craft. In early 2017, I re did the story that I told for the Risk! Podcast for The Story Project in Colorado Springs Colorado. It was incredible. I still perform spoken word poetry and am always looking for new storytelling events.
I’m optimistic for my future and always endeavor to try new things, no matter how painful. I’ve learned that you can’t be stopped with failure. It’s only a learning experience to not do whatever it is that you were doing that same way again.
