Hi there, I began creating original music in High School and began recording my own albums right away at 18.  These days, I create video and place my original music to the videos.  Currently I am focusing on guitar finger-picking, xylophones, and flutes. I am currently making bamboo flutes, and hope to eventually make a marimba!  My music is focused on live and acoustic instruments in vibrant and melodic expressions.

-----I am wanting to create an electric car and once I reach 2000$USD then I will begin making the first prototype.  The criterion for the build are that it will have four wheels, a full enclosure, be electric and able to travel at least 27 miles per hour and travel a minimum of 16 miles per charge. It will be a two seater with one seat in front and one in back, and one more thing: the entire car will weigh less than 400lbs!  

The prototype build will be featured in a YouTube documentary style video showing how it is done.  I believe that lessening our carbon footprints allows us to attain higher levels of health and happiness.  Here in Oregon and most of the US, we are practically dependent on having an automobile.  This has a tendency to slow us down and reduces our available oxygen for absorption.  Furthermore, it separates us for our neighbors and places not only a financial burden on us, but consumes lots of our time sitting alone in our vehicles driving from parking lot to parking lot.  While a small and lightweight electric car will not solve our transportational infrastructure problems altogether, it will take a step towards illustrating alternate transportation options.  I know this page has two different focuses currently, with more development, feedback and support this page might transition into two separate pages one for the electric car and one for the music.  I am eager to acquire some feedback, and a personal video is the next step for this page.

A CD will be mailed to you.  They have original cover art and are loaded with songs.  I should probably ask for shipping and handling monies as well, but will leave that out for now.  If you support me monthly, then I will link you my current audio creations that I make during the month.  Currently I am doing lots of xylophone work, but often I make guitar creations as well.  I have done lots of singing pieces as well.  For a long time, I sang a daily song and recorded it.  Sometimes I spontaneously sang, and other times I worked on a poem in practice.  I have lots of material already made, so if there is anything in particular that you are looking for, or even looking to get made, then I would likely be able to do that for you.

This tier is for those who are interested in the electric car build specifically.  Supporters to this tier will get their name (or company's name mentioned in the promotional video and the how-to video.  Once momentum is generated to start the electric car build the entire process will/would be made into a how-to style documentary video.  Additionally there will be a promotional video made for the electric car as a promotion.  Currently the idea is more about showing that this type of transportation is do-able, and an alternative option to larger automobiles, and I do not foresee this becoming a factory where mass produced electric vehicles are made.  This is the beginning however, and only time will tell what exactly the future holds.   :-)
An electric vehicle.
$2,500 or more per month
Wait, this is obviously not ready today.  Members who pledge this much would be able to receive an electric vehicle.  I know what you are thinking, wow 2500 bucks is not that much.  Well lets take into account that these will be "economy vehicles" and will weigh less than 400 lbs.  (Most likely less than 250lbs)  they will have four wheels, a full enclosure, be capable of traveling 27MPH and have a range of 16 miles.  NOTE: this is day one.  If you are reading this, then this project has rather a long ways to go still.  I believe that if this project takes off that within the first year, we can get the vehicles to travel more lik 42MPH and have a longer distance range as well.  The vehicle will be called the InTowne because it is really designed for shorter distances within a town (as opposed to from one city to the next city.../long distances)
Goals
$0 of $100 per month
A xylophone album will be released, I will work with Kunaki to print a small order of CDs and probably release though CDBaby.com for proper distribution as well.  The album will have 10-15 songs and original artwork as well.  I would be glad to receive thoughts and ideas for both the name of the album as well as the name of instrumental songs.  Supporters of a certain dollar amount will be given a CD in the mail.
