My intentions as a songwriter, creative guitarist, music educator, and sound therapist are to create memorable melodies, thoughtful lyrics, global rhythms, and organic sounds that empower and inspire audiences. I firmly believe good music helps individuals cultivate their own original voice from within. Performances and recordings are about providing a safe space where listeners can refuel and reimagine their lives in the direction they truly want them to go. Science proves that sound vibrations permeate cellular structure and help heal the human mind, body & spirit; it is my job to create songs that facilitate this process. I approach my craft and use my senses by skirting on the mainstream while maintaining integrity and connection to the progressive underground . I also believe music is a global connector that brings awareness to the many environmental challenges we face today. Raising the collective conscious is my duty as an artist and educator and to do this effectively one has to create and teach with passion and an all inclusive mind set.
