This work isn't mine. This work is OURS! ✌️
For all of the good people who have inspired me, may this work inspire the next  🙏

A bit about me...

Ever since I started writing music I've always dreamed that it would help people.  Even from the age of 14, I wrote songs that attempted to get people to think deeply about their lives and our collective ability to build a peaceful world.  14 years later that dream is coming true, and more than ever I am realizing that what I have to offer the world is both needed and appreciated!

I have good reason to believe that this passion is one that will last for decades to come.  I have been doing this now for longer than I've ever done anything else in my life, and my track record has me convinced that this is my path.  

By supporting my Patreon account, you will be affirming my life's work, as well as ensuring that I will have the time and resources to bring my creativity to life!  You will also be positively impacting countless peoples lives (because this work at it's core is about helping people!)  My commitment to you is that I will continue spreading ripples of goodness throughout the world using my music, organizing skills, and love for yoga to make the waves!  I am interested in finding MORE ways to ensure that my music is having a direct impact on social and environmental issues.  I have no doubt that this will happen 🙏 

I am hyper-aware that I am a part of the most privileged group of humans who has ever walked the Earth. With great privilege comes great responsibility, and this is my greatest pleasure.

How many trees do you think we can plant together?!?!🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳

My newest Social Good Project is a partnership with Trees For The Future to donate 1 tree to be planted for every merch item, digital download, or in this case, Patreon supporter that signs on.  Actually, each level of support on Patreon = more and more trees being planted each month!  
What is Trees For The Future?  You should totally check out their website, but long story short, they are a non-profit that operates in Africa.  Their focus is using sustainable agriculture to make a huge impact on hunger, poverty, education, and the environment in the areas in which they operate.  Their first step in this process is to plant a whole bunch of trees!  I'm blown away by their work!  They are giving people with NO opportunity 1 shot, and their program works!  The average participant sees a 400% increase in income after completing the program.  Who doesn't want a 400% raise?!

Why Trees For The Future?  Besides falling in love with their breadth of impact, but I wanted a partnership that connects my work to complete strangers.  I too work in health food world and I understand that impact that food can have not just on the environment and the body, but on the spirit.  I also feel compelled by the understanding that these people don't have a lot of opportunities for their lives to change in such a drastic way, whereas I have pretty much unlimited opportunities to change my life.  

Current and Upcoming Projects
-Developing Alive Music - This is a Music + Yoga project that I am creating in order to give yoga practitioners a chance to attend live music events where they are allowed to do a yoga practice (without getting weird looks!).  I also don't necessarily love playing in bars and venues and I really want to spend my time making music in yoga studios.  In these events I will be creating improvised music on the fly as people do their own yoga flow without the instruction of a yoga teacher.
-Next Album - My next album is going to be an environmental album told through love stories.  I've already got all of the songs written, and just need some more time and money to release them!
-I have 2 additional albums written that need to be recorded - That's right.  I have A LOT of material to record and release!  Given the time and freedom to write, I can be a total creative machine.  It's my gift, which is why I want more than anything to be able to share it with you!
-Eye Gazing Videos - The practice of eye gazing has been very instrumental in allowing me to be more vulnerable, become a better communicator, and learning to listen to other people.  It's a great practice for feeling connected to others.  I have tried eye gazing through a screen, which actually seemed to give me close to the same type of emotional impact as doing it in person!  I am going to create videos that replicate this, so that people can practice virtual eye gazing with strangers.  I will also write the accompanying sound tracks.  
I have an endless supply of things I want to do and WILL do.
