Chancelier "Xero" Skidmore
Writer, Musician, Educator, and Spoken Word Artist
in Baton Rouge
Chancelier “xero” Skidmore is writer, musician, educator, and spoken word artist. He also serves as Executive Director at Forward Arts, a non-profit organization that fosters personal and social transformation by providing arts instruction, literary education, and youth development in Southeastern Louisiana. Xero wrote this bio himself, but really only refers to himself in the third person when talking to authority figures. For example, “Officer, your radar gun is obviously malfunctioning because Xero simply does not take driving seriously enough to do it aggressively.” Xero is also not very well-received in spaces where authority figures lurk, pass their feeble judgments on him, and write frivolous tickets.
