Born and raised in the south side of Chicago, Timotheus “Pharaoh” Gordon has loved the power of writing since 3rd grade, when he copied love poems and read history literature in his free time. He got married to poetry in 2003 after turning in a humorous poem on his daily routine for a homework assignment. Writing, especially poetry, also helped him develop a voice as a African-American male with autism.
Gordon has been performing and writing poetry for ten years. Now a MFA Writing student at SCAD-Atlanta, he’s exploring non-fiction and freelance writing (along with staying with his passion for poetry) in order to inspire people in the wide worlds of social justice (e.g., inner city & autism awareness) and sports. He’s also adding photography to the mix, capturing everlasting moments at events (e.g., dances, rallies, cons, mission trips).
He’s the co-founder of Abilities of the Arts (AbilitySota), an organization working to give a voice to the disabled adult community through the arts, entertainment, music, writing, and sports.
With over 12,000 people in 2013, MomoCon is one of the fastest growing all-ages conventions in the country. Fans of Japanese Anime, American Animation, and Video Games come together to celebrate their passion by costuming, browsing the huge exhibitors hall, meeting celebrity voice talent, designers, and writers behind their favorite shows and games, and much much more over this 3 day event.
