I instantly knew after the first time I experienced IF performing his powerful personal truth at a sold-out poetry slam in Toronto that his story must be told beyond the spoken word stage. Thus began my over two year-long odyssey chronicling IF’s triumphs and frustrations finding his place in the exploding Canadian and International spoken word scene. But what I didn’t know that being a fly on the wall in IF’s wondrous world would result in me personally growing as much IF did on his own journey. Our resulting documentary film, IF THE POET, is one of my proudest achievements as a storyteller. IF’s inspiring message of “no fear, only love” is truly a beacon for us all to embrace.
