Here is what you need to know about Douglas Ridloff. He is a proud resident of Brooklyn, USA. He likes: black coffee, street art and denim. He does: poetry, storytelling, emceeing and freestyling; all in Sign Language. He is: a fearless visual artist, a poet, a performer, the owner and executive director of ASL SLAM, a monthly open mic event that is much more than just open mic, and isn’t just happening in NYC but also in D.C. and Chicago.
