About our Feature:

Toaster, a performance poet, mural artist and musician, Toaster uses a kaleidoscope of artistic vision to create, express and teach. Toaster is an accomplished slam poet as well, competing for the Berkeley, Bay Area Unified and Mental Graffiti slam teams at the National Poetry Slam. Toaster was also crowned grand slam champion in Berkeley (2012) and Chicago (2016), ranking 9th in the world at the 2016 Individual Poetry Slam. He has been featured on many stages across North America including Lexus Versus and Flow, National Public Radio, and in front of the most cutthroat audiences of all – teenagers. Aside from pursuing his own craft, Toaster works in Chicago schools as a teaching artist for Young Chicago Authors, as well as facilitating his own workshops in elementary schools, high schools, universities and other educational settings.
