A spoken word poet, pianist, and photographer, Herbert (they/them) has dazzled audiences around Vancouver and opened up new perspectives to poetry. A queer and non-binary poet, Herbert finds spoken word to be incredibly healing, and it is something that has helped them overcome social anxiety and leaving behind past toxic habits while becoming a much more confident person than ever before. Despite the rich imagery in their poetry, it may be a surprising fact to some that Herbert has been performing poetry for only a year.In their pastime, Herbert does nature photography and loves to travel. Also a piano teacher, public speaker, and mental health advocate, Herbert advocates for better mental health in music education in hopes of making it a more positive and welcoming environment.
