Motivating, making an impact in the community, sharing his craft with the next generation and expressing his thoughts on social issues are also some of his passions. He has had the opportunity to perform for The Mayor of London’s Mentoring Programme, facilitate poetry/spoken word workshops in schools and with youth organisations.

As a host he has the skills that are particularly useful when you need that person who will successfully calm and guide your guests, whilst setting just the right tone and level of decorum that your occasion demands. Being a spoken word artist and knowing his way with words he’ll be able to keep your audience engaged, entertained and bring that extra spark you’re looking for.
