KNIGHTKRAWLER ARTIST BIO
“My Heart’s My Amplifier…’”
Artistic, solid, understanding, honest. These are but a few words that
describe KnightKrawler. He realized at a young age he had a desire to
write what others did not, would not, and could not say aloud. A published author of three books, “Endless Night,” Another Endless Knight,” and “The Rules of Poetry”, he shares his knowledge and inspires both artists and fans alike. His latest book , is a collection of 80 poems and short stories, and in circulation throughout the Jacksonville Public Library system. His second book, “The Rules of Poetry”, serves as a guide to inspire, teach, and educate emerging artists about the benefits and vices of speaking in front of a live audience and deliver their message with integrity.
In addition to being a published author, KnightKrawler has an extensive performance background throughout the United States and Canada facilitating workshops, seminars, and spoken word events that focus on the importance of education, effective communication, and how the belief in oneself can impact meaningful personal change and positive outcomes on a greater scale. His affiliations include being an alumnus of both Florida State College in Jacksonville and Jacksonville University.
KnightKrawler was selected for nine NACA (National Association of Campus Activities,) conferences to speak in front of thousands of students. He has done several multiple city tours for spoken word and lecture that will culminate this year in St. Paul, MN. He has coined the phrase “My Heart’s My Amplifier, I Don’t Need No Mic,” which has become his mantra as well as an inspiration and encouragement to spoken word artists everywhere. He shows how it’s not about a stage or a microphone it’s about letting your heart and soul speak for you while hopefully inspiring others at the same time. Taking this philosophy to new heights, KnightKrawler has established GET AMPLIFIED INC., a non-profit organization designed to encourage society via live performances, lectures, workshops, and literature.
