THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD SEE OUR FEATURE:



Christopher Kuretich a.k.a. has taken the poetry world by storm! Born June 11, 1976 in Washington State, he would later settle in Mount Vernon, NY. Money earning Mt. Vernon, as it was known, was home to known rap artists such as Heavy D, Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth; as well as actors and celebrities including Academy Award Winner: actor Denzel Washington, Legendary Dick Clark, Debbie Allen, Phylicia Rashad, and a list of others. Gemineye pursued college studies at the University at Albany, SUNY- where he received both a Bachelors and Masters degree. In his spare time, Gemineye worked endlessly towards developing his art. In June of 2001, his transition to Montclair State University in New Jersey would prove to be one of the greatest opportunities presented at the time. Employed as an Administrator within the office of Residence Life, Gemineye began to associate with various staff members, some of whom enjoyed attending diversified poetry readings throughout the Tri-state area. Gemineye made his way into the poetry scene August of 2001 at Newark, New Jerseys Euphoria Café, which was hosted by HBO Def Poetry Jams Flowmentalz. Becoming a crowd favorite in nearly every venue he entered, Gemineye sought to hone his skills through poetry competitions. A 2002 finalist at the world renowned Nuyorican Poets Café in New York, a 2002 finalist at Serengeti Plains in New Jersey- he would soon hold the title of Grand Slam Champion in New Jersey and become a member of the 2002 New Jersey National Slam Team. Gemineye would reaffirm his position atop the Slam circuit in New Jersey with a repeat performance earning him a second year as the Grand Slam Champion for 2003 and earning him another spot on the 2003 New Jersey National Slam Team.
