Poetri’s achievements as a poet include his performance on Broadway’s Def Poetry Jam, touring the world twice, and co-founding Da Poetry Lounge, the world’s largest poetry venue. He has also written, produced, and appeared in numerous advertisements and campaigns for major brands, such as Nike, Los Angeles Lakers, Delta Airlines, JBL, Snickers, and BET. One of his most notable accomplishments was his role in persuading LeBron James to sign with Nike by performing for him on Nike’s campus.

In addition to his work in the advertising industry, Poetri has also made significant contributions to television and film. He has appeared in feature films like National Treasure 2, Blades of Glory, and Yes Man, as well as television shows like Oprah Winfrey Show, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, and Bones.

Despite his many accomplishments, Poetri remains grounded and committed to his beliefs. He has used his popularity to create two of the most popular spoken word shows in Southern California, Da Poetry Lounge and Spoken Funk, and has even taken his talents to the High Desert in Spring Valley Lake Country Club in Victorville.
