patron

thanks for visiting!

we create "standup storytelling" (commentary, teaching, spoken word (poetry), rap, and song) videos and podcasts that use mentoring, mediation, and problem solving to inspire LEarning, solutions, and change - change that starts within.

our content delivers compelling, thematic, personal narratives about love, change, equality, power, (self-)control, and purpose.

popular podcast segments include "Dear Hannah (Letters To My Daughter)", "Fight The Good Fight", "LEarning", and "The BIG Picture."

we have produced a video / audio "concept" mixtape called changED, which contains the following tracks ...

  1. converse
  2. bag of life
  3. renaissance (SEE INTRODUCTION VIDEO ABOVE)
  4. GRASPP
  5. sing a song
  6. the formula
  7. old school
  8. the matrix
  9. power
  10. self-control
  11. issues
  12. changED
  13. the equalizer

please help to amplify and sustain our work by becoming a supporter.

we create and share at Reach - Then Teach .


about me ...

my name is Derrick.

my name means
"leader of his people".

my education began
when i finished school.

learning led
to unlearning ...

then a revival
of RElearning
and culture.

i am relearning
both my essence
and function ...

as a

lover
"liver"
friend
giver
servant
leader
student
reader

provider
protector
connector
director
selector
collector
erector
inspector

i am relearning that ...

... teaching
is about reaching

... knowing
is knowing that
you DON'T know

... my gifts can
impact the world

... i can relate
to people with
great empathy
and engage the world
around me

through

acceptance
affirmation
accountability
& authority

... tradition begins
and ends with change.

... everything must change
- and STAY changED.

... i will build
a dream team
and strategic scheme
that will manifest
all my GOoD ideas.

... prophecy is not seeing
"the future"

it is understanding
"the past"
and speaking
truth to power
in "the present".

... vision is seeing
an idea clearly enough
to stir your passions

and cloudy enough
to make you move towards it
with enthusiasm
and careful intent.

i am relearning that

i am a ...

mastermind
simple kinda fella
griot frio
stand-up storytella

... i can execute
any role necessary
to express myself
to this world ...

writer
producer
DJ
emcee
teacher
preacher
commentator
poet
songbird
percussionist
sax player
soothsayer

... i have taken command
of my time and talents,
and invested both

into building and protecting
my creative space
my happy, safe place

where finally
i get to be all of me
who i always was
who i am
who i wanna be.

... it will take
all of that
and all of me

moving with

urgency
purpose
strategy
tenacity

pregnant
with ideas & visions

armed with
mighty pen, pad
and boundless
imagination

craving
knowledge and wisdom

braving
my risky decisions

saving
my best for last

to cash in
all of these chips.

... to make that happen,
i know that
standards must be set

for battles yet
to be waged,

by tigers yet
to be caged,

believers yet
to be enraged,

soldiers yet
to be engaged.

... i am on a mission to
challenge us to more than

learning to show
learning to owe

i'm about

learning to grow
learning to know

i want my wife to see
that this evolution of
the best version of me
is because of her love
and the freedom it grants.

i want my daughter to see
how to be free
to forge her own path
in her own happy space

and leave an inheritance
to her children's children ...

... an inheritance of her heart
full of treasure beyond measure.

welcome to my renaissance.
