He's presented several radio series: "Bespoken Word", "Rhyme & Reason" & "Poetic Justice" all on BBC Radio 4, the latter of which focused on the extensive rehabilitation work that he does in prisons. He’s currently an advisor for the Prisoner rehabilitation charity Switchback .
Mr Gee has delivered two Tedx talks and was a host for the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Forum in London. He starred in the West End show “Into The Hoods” (as the “Poet”) which won the What'sOnStage's Theatregoers' Choice Award for Best Ensemble Performance. He was also a featured guest on Akala's BAFTA nominated BBC 2 program "Poetry Between the Lines" and his poetry launched the 2017 Barbour International Spring season. Ever dedicated to promoting the unheard voices in society, he runs a series of drama workshops & artistic events called “WorkinOnit” for young performers.
