Describe your most profound slam-related experience:
"During the Finals night show at the 2002 National Poetry Slam in Minneapolis, Marc Smith called me up out of the audience and had me host the entire teams portion of the night. It just occurred to him to do so that afternoon and even with that much warning there wasn't any way to wrap my brain around it. I was being given the MC duties at one of the biggest poetry events in the country on its biggest night by the form's most revered practitioner. It was an honor of unmatched proportions."
