Rik has appeared on and previously hosted his own spoken word radio show, and also produced a popular poetry podcast with his partner in crime, Matt Cummins.
Rik plays the guitar alongside his own spoken word poetry as well as in collaboration with talented artists, such as Asabi Hawah and Rukea Azougaye - in this video, filmed and sound editing by Tony As.
Rik is a proud member of "Methods Of Movement" breakdance crew and works as a professional breakdancer - sometimes combining dance choreography with his spoken word poetry, notably at Jonzi D's 'Open Art Surgery'.
In this multimedia collaboration, with David Valentine, Rik produced the instant messaging script translation and recorded the male voice over for a modern adaptation of "The Balcony Scene" from Romeo and Juliet.
This piece has been featured at numerous films festivals worldwide, and has also been used as a classroom resource for creating multimedia video work.
