Jaylee Alde
Jaylee Alde is a member of the Pinoy Spoken Word collective Proletariat Bronze based in Oakland, CA. His confessional style, a tangle of intricate writing and intense delivery, placed him 2nd in the nation at the 2004 National Poetry Slam. Jaylee was a member of the San Francisco National Poetry Slam Team coaching staff and helped to coach team SF to 3rd in the nation in 2009. When he’s not writing, he’s thinking about it. Jaylee hopes to one day pay rent with poetry but in the meantime he’s happy waiting tables and raising a half empty bottle in toast for the working class.
