The Artist is one of those truly rare experiences that guests can enjoy at an event. Perhaps my favorite part of this engaging experience is that he takes time with each individual to get to know them a bit before the ink hits the paper. Each poem is a unique reflection of the person sitting with him. The Artist is not a gimmicky activation, it's a real, sincere experience that holds something special for every individual that takes the journey with him.

I had the opportunity to meet him at Marriott Masters, and the E4 Conference. Both times I was amazed at the long lines for people waiting to sit with him. He is a true professional and does an amazing job working from his small table, dim lighting, and an original Royal typewriter. He would be an asset to any function.

In 2018, Western Union Financial Services, Inc. participated in Financial Service Convention in Las Vegas with over 700 Attendees. At a Gala event on the last evening, we contracted with him (Poet) as entertainment at the Western Union Booth. During a 3 hour event, we were astonished at the response of attendees coming to our booth and all visiting with us about our services while they waited for the Poet to write them a Poem that they could take home to their “significant other”.His setup was rather simple with a table and an old-fashioned typewriter, and preprinted cards that indicated the poem was compliments of Western Union. But his dress, behavior, and attitude made a tremendous impact on hundreds of people that evening. As the evening was ending, people were still standing in line waiting for a poem, and he stayed beyond his contracted time to make sure all that was still waiting were able to receive a poem.The event was a big hit with attendees, and I would recommend him (The Poet) for events such as these where you are trying to draw a crowd to your booth and overall business. I can see his service being used at Company Holiday Parties for internal employees, or at the many Conventions throughout the year. As a Corporate Sponsor, we were very well pleased with him and his services, and even more pleased with the draw it provided to the Western Union booth at our event.Sincerely,

Stacey and I knew that we wanted something special for our wedding day. When our wedding planner told us about him we immediately realized that he would be an awesome addition to our wedding entertainment. We could not have been more pleased with him. He added that 'something special to our wedding. There was a constant crowd around his typewriter and all the guests really enjoyed watching him work his magic. The next week we had many folks comment on how wonderful and on point his poetry was. We can't recommend him enough and his beautiful words enough for any type of gathering.

“I invited him to share his poetry at a benefit concert and art exhibit at my studio in Austin and I heard nothing but great feedback from my collectors. He is passionate, and professional and has a few words that he would like to share with you."

The Artist's booth was one of the most touching things I have seen at a festival. A raw old analog typewriter atop a wooden desk sitting at odds with a world of digital everything, nothing but his wits and his muse to carry him on his journey to create bespoke poetry in real-time for all who want to watch a real poet at work. For the 2 minutes, it takes him to materialize a beautiful, artful, and surreal stream of words that sit together perfectly around your chosen subject, you can stand there and listen to the clatter of keys on ink ribbon and wonder why we would want to write any other way. A curious and quiet delight amongst the loudness and lights of 2000 and teen festival culture. So glad we met... and thank you for the poem! "

He has done two commissioned poems for short films. They are absolute treasures. Not only is he an extremely talented poet, but he is also fast! One of the poems, he wrote on the spot. He has the sensitivity and passion to write from his heart."
