Douglas Allen Stewart is a powerful leader, businessman, poet, musician, MC, storyteller aka VOUduX and art therapist who has been teaching and working with youth, schools and communities for more than 20 years. His passion for inspiring hope, change and enlightenment speaks for itself through his writings, his art, his dedication and his commitment to bringing the best out of others and helping others discover the best within themselves.
Stewart has been in the forefront of community activism and education through the Arts since he was 18 years old. Always having been involved in music since early childhood, Stewart has found innovative ways to express change, inspire freedom and live effectively. Born in San Mateo, CA in 1970, Stewart found himself always surrounded by music, creativity and sports, and excelled in all. He graduated from San Mateo High School, receiving a dual scholarship to Dominican University in San Rafael for Tennis and Basketball, where he went on to set records and bring titles to their developing Athletic Program while also obtaining his BA degree in Business. Always an advocate of civil and human rights, Stewart founded the first and only Black Student Union at Dominican and hosted their first Black History Program in 1992, which caught the attention of many, including Channel 4 news and had over 1,500 in attendance.
Passionate about his craft for the Spoken Word and Edutainment, Stewart was "drafted" into the keynote speaker, performance art and spoken word scene since graduating from high school. Sharing his works at graduations, Baccurlaurates, Radio Programs, organizations, music events, schools and other venues, Stewart fought to find balance between his studies, his desire for teaching and the arts, sports and his passion to learn.
