Reese began writing poetry at the age of nine and was published in a national anthology at the age of 12. She discovered slam poetry by noticing a sandwich board outside the Starry Plough in Berkeley when she was an art student in Oakland, California.
Reese has slammed in Berkeley, at Jaime DeWolf’s Tourette’s Without Regrets in Oakland, and won the Art Has Power slam recently at Yavapai College.
Reese has found many creative outlets through the years, but writing has always been the cheapest and easiest means of expressing herself. She’s left-handed, loves oysters, and always makes complete stops at stop signs, even when no one else is around.
Reese currently lives in Sedona where she moved in April 2009, and where she has accelerated her passion to write and perform.
