Cameron (he,him, his) is an organizer, educator, poet, stand up comedian, writer, and probably a bunch of other stuff he can’t remember. Currently living in Biddeford, Cameron was formerly based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. For over a decade, Cameron has been researching, writing, and engaging in performances that examine the intersection of race, pop culture, trauma, and speculative fiction. He identifies ideologically as an Afrofuturist.
Before moving to Maine, Cameron worked as sexual health educator with Planned Parenthood, as well as proudly serving as the Vice President of Black Lives Matter Oklahoma City. Additionally, Cameron served on the board of Freedom Oklahoma, the first LGBTQIA2S advocacy organization in the state, as well as on the ACLU of Oklahoma’s Board of Directors.
Outside of his career in community organizing, Cameron has a long history of spoken word performance. He was named one of the Blue Whale Comedy Festival’s “Comics to Watch” in 2017, opening for comedians such as Beth Stelling and Byron Bowers. Cameron also competed with Red Dirt Poetry in the National Poetry Slam Competition two years in a row, and has taught an independent poetry writing class with the Ralph Ellison Foundation.
Cameron firmly believes in community-led, intersectional, and radial approaches to social justice advocacy. In his spare time, Cameron enjoys cooking, overanalyzing tv shows from the mid 2000s, and reading comic books.
