Foster aka AutoPilot
Foster aka AutoPilot is a professional orator who can be seen capturing hearts on movie sets, moving minds on panels, igniting spirits with spoken word, and commanding the city’s largest stages.
Foster is rich with humor and brings that joy into his work as a teaching artist with one of the city’s premier arts and culture nonprofit organizations “The Diatribe,” which he co-founded.
He is a dedicated father that currently resides in Grand Rapids, but this Michigan Native was born in Detroit and raised in Muskegon.
AutoPilot is a graduate of Grand Valley State University, a playwright, lyricist, nightlife extraordinaire, and is the brainchild that co-curated “The Drunken Retort” one of the “Must Experience Events in the City” - Grand Rapids Magazine.
Autopilot breathes impromptu truths and truly lives to connect people; be that through community organizing, officiating weddings, or The Original Back to the 90’s party (which he co-founded) that has sold out nearly 30 shows.
