Michael “Skillzilla” Ferguson is a tall, black man, all too aware that his size makes him particularly vulnerable in America. Michael is scared because of his skin color, and he chooses to express that fear in his writing rather than remaining afraid at home. His poetry focuses on racial and social injustice and nerd stuff. If Michael isn’t writing, then he’s sitting at home with his wife, Dr. Sandy Ho, and watching trash television, reading comics, or playing video games. He is currently working on obtaining his MA in English at CSU Pueblo and hopes one day to be the black professor for students who look like him, which Michael never had. Michael is always open to talk about Poetry, Comics, and Naruto. Feel free to speak to him about any of these things if you see him at an open mic.
