• Who is LOVE the poet

    LTP is a Career Creative, Personal Trainer, Radio Personality, and Founder of Brown + Healthy™.

     

    "I am a compositional deviant, creating music with words and poems with guitar chords. Each muse-driven verse reared to rattle the spirit, and arouse the senses; forcing the audience to free themselves from complacency and evoke a change that will become addictive. My work is an intimate jolt that returns you to your reflection." -M.A. Nelson
