DAMN WONDERFUL is a documentary celebrating the journey of self-love and self-worth of 6 young LGBTQP poets from New York City and Los Angeles. They come from various backgrounds and experiences, offering a visceral and honest look into some of the challenges and triumphs our youth are facing.

Edwin is an artist who was born and raised in Los Angeles.  He began writing at the age of thirteen and has grown to become a consistent and strong voice for his community.  Touching on the personal subjects of his love life, and his dynamic-often fragile-relationship with his parents, he continues to strive for personal enlightenment and to improve the lives of people around him if just through his words.  Making people laugh is something he has mastered, and patience is what he is currently practicing.  Edwin was a member of the 2011 Hollywood poetry slam team. He has performed in various venues throughout Los Angeles and Boston; his highlight performance being in The Bovard Theater at the University of Southern California.  

He is also completing his first book of poems entitled, Good Morning: A Story of Flight in the Making which will lead the readers through an intimate look at some of his pivotal love stories that have helped to mold him into the man he is today.  Edwin currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina.  

Making people laugh is something he has mastered.
