Ayokunle Falomo is Nigerian & American. As a storyteller, his singular mission is to use his pen as a shovel to unearth those things that make us human. He is the author of kin.DREAD & thread, this wordweaver must! He and his work have been featured in print (Local Houston magazine, Glass Mountain) and online (The New York Times, Houston Chronicle, Hive Society, Squawk Back, Pressure Gauge Press.) His work has also taken him to stages - most notably, the TEDxHouston stage - and other venues around and outside of Texas. He enjoys walking & talking to himself (a lot) & sometimes, he is fortunate enough to have other people there to listen.
