Toaster is an artist. A performance poet, muralist, and musician, Toaster uses a kaleidoscope of artistic vision to create, express, and teach. He has been featured on many stages across North America -- including Lexus Versus and Flow,  National Public Radio, and various National Slam competitions -- and has performed in front of the most cutthroat audiences of all: high school classrooms.

Aside from pursuing his own craft, Toaster works in Chicago schools as a teaching artist for Young Chicago Authors, in addition to facilitating his own workshops in elementary schools, high schools, universities, and various other educational settings. You can find Toaster's work on YouTube, at your local dive, and by following him on social media.
