In the world of poetry slam, he is the first to win both the 2003 National Poetry Slam Individual Grand Championship and the 2006 Individual World Poetry Slam Grand Championship. He has toured very extensively throughout United States, Canada and Europe. Since 2002, he's covered several hundred thousand miles performing his brand of poetry and humor. McGee has been featured on HBO's Def Poetry Jam, CBC Radio and Television, and NPR's Snap Judgment. He was one of the first Americans to perform spoken word at the University of Paris, la Sorbonne in 20...05. He was appointed Poet Laureate of Santa Clara County (Silicon Valley) for 2018 & 2019.
