Who I am

National Champion Slam Poet/ Inspirational Speaker/ Actor/Writer/ Host

I live for live performance. Since the age of 15 I've found expression and identity on a stage, discovering myself through portraying other's stories in plays and musicals. Slam Poetry taught me the sound of my own voice. My aspiration is to use my story through slam poetry to help others share theirs.

Andre is not only a talented poet but his skill at making people feel comfortable with the slam poetry medium was evident. His poem “Crayon Box” became the theme of the event which was to celebrate diversity of every kind.

His poems are creative, heartfelt, and full of pieces of his own personal history. He is incredibly introspective during his writing process, reflecting on his own emotions both for personal and external situations.

As one of the main hosts of the APS Sunday Show, he has become a face for the Austin Poetry Slam. He seamlessly transitions audience banter into his emcee duties and the crowd absolutely loves him! SC has become such an integral part of the slam, it’s now impossible for me to imagine this scene without him.
— Jomar Valentine - Slam Master of the Austin Poetry Slam



In anything I do I look to inspire. Whether it's bringing awareness to a social issue, or giving hope to someone who feels like their struggle is singular, I aspire to provide a show that leaves my audience captivated and moved. My goal is to create a safe space where real conversations can live and breathe.
