Kavon Cortez Jones is a Milwaukee homegrown writer, storyteller, biker, and actor. Kavon leads bike rides around to around Creme City to build community, acted in Quasimondo Theatre's avant-garde productions, writes stories about grape-picking and so forth. Kavon a year ago self-published his debut poetry book, 'Club Noir', September 26th, 2016, 22nd birthday. He's a fresh 23-year-old, slowly transitioning out of his 'Club Noir' writing phase to 'the Essence Of Cool' era.

Kavon says the next three years will be centered around 'Carpe Diem', being more fearless, simply a celebration of life.
