As an award-winning rapper and full-time teaching professor of mathematics, Professor Lyrical will discuss (via rapping live and doing spoken-word poetry) how he has taken two seemingly very different career choices and blended them into one unique career. Lyrical will explain how he uses the positive aspects of Hip Hop culture to empower himself and his students to advocate for socioeconomic change, while providing tangible examples of how others can do the same.

Professor Lyrical holds a B.S. in Business Administration and an M.S. in Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. He also has completed the academic coursework for his Doctorate in Higher Education at Northeastern University, and he successfully defended his thesis on "Increasing STEM Degree Attainment among Underrepresented Populations" in 2015. Professor Lyrical's album and book, both titled "PUT ‘EM ALL TO SHAME," are physically packaged together into what Lyrical calls "the world's first albook," or album-book.
