Hi you.

It's good to see you here. If we're just meeting, the short story of me is that I'm a singer-songwriter and playwright who harbors an abiding love for olives.

The longer story is that while I've spent most of my career writing, recording and performing music, a few years ago I wrote both the music and the script for a musical. Like the kind you see in a theatre. Like Cats. With the laughing and the crying. Except mine is called Light Years and it premiered at Signature Theatre in Washington, DC in 2018 and I loved the whole catastrophe so much I'm now writing another one.

The even longer story is that sometimes I get an itchy case of wanderlust and head to places like Nicaragua or Tanzania or India with a non-profit I started called OneVoice. And we go and make music with youth and help them create peace and social change in their communities.

So, I write and I sing and most of the time what I'm really after is that small space, that shared aliveness, between you and me. I find that the more we meet up there, the more compassionate we and our world become. So, we've got a job ahead of us, don't we?

To that end, welcome to my Patreon page. Consider it our shady spot under the olive tree. In return for your patronage and friendship I will share bits and pieces of my brain and heart: music, words, 3am thoughts offered up to the universe, works in progress (aren't we all?). I'll even share some of my olives with you. Y'know, once we get to know one another.
