Me.
I've been in love with music since I can remember. My musical prowess traces its roots back wooden pews and choir robes, differentiating between the black and white keys on the piano and being overwhelmed by the disco melodies KC & the Sunshine Band so easily concocted. Words have been my solace for much of my life. I remember getting in trouble for staying up too late reading. I couldn't help it. Silverstein and Alcott and Angelou would bind me to their stories so much so that their stories have become my memories. Now, it is my pleasure to pursue that which has chased me my entire life: articulating the human experience through song and prose.

Why Patreon?
Patrons are the salvation of the arts. If you go to any museum or theatre, you will more than likely see a list of people who have made the artistic expression you are about to perceive possible. In the music world, we are used to hearing about artists who are signed to a label. That label will offer an artist a contract saying, "We the label sign you as our artist. As such, we will cover publicity costs, marketing costs, studio costs, songwriting sessions, touring costs, album art costs, wardrobe costs, living costs, etc. so that you can focus on being the artist so that you can get fans so that they will buy or stream your music so that we will keep spending all of this money on you." For those who get this opportunity, a lot of times their creativity is dictated to by the label. Patreon offers another opportunity.  

Through Patreon, you are my record label. You are my executives. At the same time, you are my fans. You get exclusive access to what I'm working on, behind the scenes footage of my writing process, and access to me as your artist. Let's create together!
