From arts educator, to event host, to youth mentor, to award-winning poet/writer, to most recently, directing, Patrick de Belen is a storyteller of many kinds. He strongly believes through these stories he can save the world and himself – and secure the bag – all at the same time.

Along with his own personal projects, PDB has collaborated with many notable organizations – using storytelling to build and serve his community. Find some of these works on his website: PatrickdeBelen.com / follow him on instagram at @patrick_debelen
