Rhymes and rap verses were my first forays into writing, and they still occupy a meaningful spot in my journals. Between 2011 and 2014, I performed many of my verses under the regrettable stage name Oatmeal. I’ve performed at the Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe in New York City and Fresh Cafe in Honolulu, sharing the stage with the likes of Taylor Mali, Taimane Gardner, Kealoha, and others.
