This is my third poetry + storytelling album.

This is my sophomore poetry + storytelling album and was completed with the support of Jack Straw Cultural Center in Seattle, WA.
HUMANITY is an exploration of poverty and homelessness with a few topics about my life.

It is my freshman poetry + storytelling album.
The final track, American Dream, has been remixed and offered on Soundcloud.
