Socially random with +33 charm points Omar "Ion" Holmon lives life like Doug Funnie and believes he'd be the only Jedi whose lightsaber would match his chuck taylors. When not imagining himself in anime fight scenes or working to make the world more abnormal he spends his time in slam poetry competitions and talking about his love for otters/pandas. He has represented New Jersey (Loserslam) and New York (Nuyorican & Urbana) at the National Poetry Slam. He has also been on Ted X, Button Poetry, Verses and Flow and even a commercial for Laphroaig whiskey.
