Shaun Srivastava, aka nodalone, was a member
of the 2011 Flagslam National Poetry Slam Team.
Originally from East Lansing, Michigan, nodalone moved to Flagstaff in 2008 to attend Northern Arizona University.
He will complete degrees in both exercise science and psychology in 2012, with plans to pursue a master’s degree in psychology.
While quietly writing poetry for many years, nodalone has only recently begun performing his spoken word at slams and various events throughout Arizona.
Preferring to use his platform to address current political, cultural, and social issues, the poet gives a performance that captures the power of the issue in a personal and passionate style.
