Olympia People's Mic feat. Von Bellows

A recent transplant to the Bay Area and member of the 2015 Oakland Poetry Slam Team, 26-year-old Von 'DaWiZard' Bellows has come to love the California lifestyle and ability live out his art in such a welcoming arena. Born in Washington, DC-bred in Maryland, Von found art at an early age when he broke

into song at the age of four during a solemn Christmas event. From there, the stage and microphone would be his weapons to battle the world! During performances he overcomes the constant obstacle of a speech impediment that has been a struggle since childhood. In 2007 and 2008, Von competed in the Brave New Voices National Youth poetry slam. Upon beginning his freshman year at Elizabeth City State University in 2007, Von founded the school's first poetry organization and slam team, the Free Mindz Poets, which continues to produce great artists and minds now 8 years later. Always the entertainer, Von thrives in the spotlight; He currently works as the Program Director for Urban Knights Radio (powered by Academy of Art University) where his love of speaking to an audience and music can mix and merge live over the air through his morning show, ‘The OtherSide’. As a recent college graduate and current graduate student at Academy of Art University, Von hopes to use all of his gained skills to better the world and accomplish his dreams.
