The Miz Chris World

I know I always say I am blessed, so much so that some friends (side eye to Charleen Caabay) make fun of my cheesy demeanor on social media. But life keeps giving me the good stuph and I can't help it, even on this rainy day "I'm walking on sunshine." I am super excited to announce that I have been selected as the Host City Director for the 2015 National Poetry Slam coming BACK to Oakland next year. If you didn't attend this year you have another chance in 2015 before it moves to its next host city so MARK YOUR CALENDARS! This year (2014), with many thanks to Mona Webb who recommended me, I worked with Maureen Benson, the Event Coordinator (one of the very few women in my life who is more busy than I am!) doing marketing and promotional support for this week long event. I had such an amazing and positive experience with Maureen (she is a GREAT boss lady!) and NPS it was overwhelming. Having over 500 poets roaming downtown Oakland was like living in artist's dream. I am so incredibly grateful that Maureen recommended me for this position and that the executive council took her recommendation. I am super excited about making 2015 an incredible experience for the poets and the many, many lovers of poetry who will descend upon Oakland in 2015. We have already started planning so make sure you block out those dates for next year. Because we want to see you! #npsoak
Keep on watching me 👀
Homemade lettuce wraps. It must be fall bc I am nesting. #instafood
Haring sculpture at the De Young it was so amazing to see it in person after having studied it in books. #politicalharing #deyoung #latepost
Keith Haring at twilight. Keith Haring was one of the most prolific artists of his time and his predictions of the impact of technology are spot on 30 years later. #politicalharing #deyoung
33 years later still relevant as it was in '81 #politicalharing #deyoung
Finally at the Keith Haring show, an artist I have studied and admired for years. #politicalharing #deyoung
At my favorite place to munch in the city.
After a long and prosperous day of working all I want to do is lay on the couch and take a nap. Stella has the same aspirations except for one thing... she wants to lay on me and doesn't care that in doing so it makes it near impossible for me to nap. As you can tell by her expression she is annoyed that I moved in order to keep breathing #stellastories #catsofinstagram #sorrynotsorry

Outing Myself as a Taylor Swift Fan

So I have a deep dark secret… I do this in the dark and hidden recesses of my home, and sometimes if I am jonesing hella hard, in the car (I need to get my windows tinted!). But as with most things in my life I feel best when I purge myself of my dark secrets... read more
