His story is featured within his Autobiography Saved with Honu. Upon his love of writing he’s also published five children’s books on a ‘buy one give one’ model with a goal of defeating illiteracy for at risk youth. In an effort to better himself and secure the skills and ability to write and survive, Arlo earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Administration with an emphasis in Human Resources, and founded FeltIt InMyHeart Press. Arlo self describes his writing as; “I write what I need to hear, regardless of if I’m ready to realize the message myself. This is the foundation of my poetry, and has become the basis of my conversational writing style”.
