Mr. Enlightenment, whose real name is Joey Tucker, was born on July 8, 1981 in the small town of Walterboro, South Carolina. Growing up, Joey never had the desire to write poetry but sometimes he would freestyle with his friends for fun. It would be about four more years before he actually wrote his first poem.
After graduating from Walterboro High School in 1999, Joey went on to attend Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina. While taking a poetry class during his senior year in college, Joey’s interest in the art form was sparked. At that point he knew poetry was an art he needed to explore.
After graduating from college in 2004, Joey moved to Charleston, South Carolina and started his career as a fourth grade language arts teacher. Though he pushes for more involvement from parents and less emphasis on standardized testing Joey enjoys teaching because it allows him to make an impression on a child that lasts forever.
The name Mr. Enlightenment acknowledges both the fact that he is a teacher and the fact that he uses his poetry as a way to shine light with his lines and words. With the help of Christopher K.P. Brown (2 Pens and Lint), Mr. Enlightenment released his first project, Walletz & Pursez, in June 2009. His second release, L.I.G.H.T., was released early August 2010.
In December 2015, Mr. Enlightenment released his first poetry cd, Worth My Weight In Watts. You can find Mr. Enlightenment performing at different venues in Charleston, SC and interacting with readers via his Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Awake 2 Oneness Radio with Barrie Gellis on Friday, April 29, 2016 at 7:00 PM EDT. Barrie is a former member of Jane Roberts’ ESP class in Elmira NY (one of the New York Boys) and was referred to as "Our Poet" by Seth in 1972.
Barrie has written more than 4,000 poems and has published a book entitled "Outside Is a Secret Key". It is a collection of 100 poems that relate to experiencing inner and outer life, including Seth concepts, as well as poems that Sue Watkins included in her book, “Conversations with Seth.”
Seth was a nonphysical personality who spoke through Jane Roberts from 1963 to her death in 1984. Seth has dictated 25 books through Jane and is recognized as ushering in the modern New Age movement, introducing the phrase that “you create your own reality.”
Seth's concepts empower each person to find their own answers, become accountable in a loving way for their own lives — while caring about the well-being of others.
Barrie has given presentations at various Seth conferences, including the most recent Global Online Seth Conference in October 2015. He has created a number of online Seth sites and message boards including: Barrie Gellis’ Seth Group—All Things Seth.
