Born and raised in Richmond, VA Khalid Thompson discovered a passion for poetry during creative writing classes in High School. Post-graduation, he sought to challenge his solitary nature via performance outlets such as acting and acoustic guitar. However, there persisted a deep desire within him to find an artistic path more suited to his inherent personality. In the spring of 2006 he decided to move to Washington, DC to gain inspirations from a
culturally diverse, international city.
