Andreas “Dre-T” Tillman Jr. is a devoted father, artist, and activist out of Sacramento, CA. At 15 years old, he began recording and publishing his own music, building a reputation for his witty lyrics and original instrumentals. After a few years and the production of three complete music projects, Dre-T was introduced to Sacramento Area Youth Speaks (SAYS) where he was invited to be a competing poet in the 2010 Poetry Slam Season. At the age of 17, he advanced as a finalist to be part of Sacramento’s first-ever youth poetry slam team. Today, Dre-T is the founder, president and CEO of Foreign Native, an alternative program where he encourages the use of his Five Creative Roots: 1) Identity Development, 2) Community Integrity, 3) Engagement & Participation, 4) Truth Seeking 5) Meaning Making.
