December 2014 Featured Artist - Rudy Rudacious

Born and raised in Providence, RI Rudy Rudacious is a Poet, Actor, Host, Barber, Author and Radio Personality who is horrible at writing bios. Referring to himself as a "Spoken Word MC" Rudy Rudacious is known to travel solo and get lost EVERYWHERE. Rudy has performed on many stages and has hugged a lot of people. Rudy Rudacious keeps his bio short because he believes his past accomplishments mean nothing. "It's all about the current moment, my resume is not going to perform for me. Regardless of what I've done I still have to do, so let's just do it!"

NOTE: Rudy Rudacious is fine with photography BUT prohibits any video recording (besides Instagram videos) that hasn't been agreed to ahead of time.
