Hello there. i'm gark.


I'm an MC, prosefessional, and spoken sword poet. Word around the FiDi is I bruise pages and have one-mic stands with Bay Area stages.

I'm originally from Stockton, CA, where I was a founding member of the city's first team to compete in Brave New Voices -- the world's largest youth poetry slam. I represented Team San Francisco at the 2017 National Poetry Slam in Denver, CO.

As a scribelord, my words have appeared in sPARKLE & bLINK, Points in Case, Robot Butt, HotNewHipHop, and MapQuest, among other publications.

Hippety-Hoppety-wise, I'm the creator of RAMENdon, the world's first Top Ramen-themed EP. I also recently released GOOD CHOICES, an LP that donates 100% of proceeds to non-profits in San Francisco and Stockton. My music has graced the pages of EARMILK, 2DopeBoyz, FiverrRESPECT Mag, ELEVATOR, and other esteemed dopeness purveyors.
