inverse K has performed at a broad spectrum of events over the last five years, from the United Nations and TEDx to conferences, festivals, and private events. His range of content and style allow unique performances to be curated for each event, including freestyle (improvised lyrics) when appropriate.

Inverting the letter K yields a symbol ( ꓘ or > I ) meaning “greater than i” and “greater than 1.” This is a reminder to see beyond the self, that humanity cannot exist without community, that sustainability and growth depend upon mutually beneficial relationships.
