Upon the completion of an assignment in the 11th grade, his Performing Arts teacher noticed an exceptional talent that others hadn’t. She encouraged his development, and he hasn’t looked back since. IntelleKt, along with his SisterEkho, make up the Poetic Duo Ekhoed IntelleKt. Both are a part of Street Poets NYC. IntelleKt has performed in the Knicks Urban World Poetry Slam held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, along with other NYC venues…
Ekho, born August 17th, is a Native of Brooklyn NY. While other 7 year olds were stuck playing video games, she was beginning to form her thoughts into ideas, and those ideas into words, and those words into a rhythm, which became her first pieces of poetry. At the age of 17, her thoughts and ideas on paper, became an audible art form, as she began to perform her work for audiences. Along with her Bachelors Degree in Psychology from City College, Ekho is an accomplished Graphic Designer, Event Planner, and Promoter.
Ekho has performed at various venues on the East Coast, her words have been heard from the sunny skies in Florida, to the coldest of NYC nights. She is one half of the Dynamic Poetic Duo Ekho(ed) Intellekt, and the COO of the StreetPoetsNYC
