About Me

CURRENT MISSION

World, words, music, people.

ABOUT ME

What's up?

I'm a writer, musician, yogi, and lover of the world! I currently live in Denver, grew up in NY, lived in Austin for 4 yeras and spent the last decade traveling around the world and playing music.

Now, I'm finishing a novel, working with diversity businesses, practicing lots of yoga, and meeting all the cool people of the world : )

My world is a huge ball of music, art, words, people, and adventure. I want to meet YOU.

I play guitar, sing, and jam piano. If you're a musician, definitely come by Denver and jam. If you're not a musician, definitely come by Denver and jam.

Oh yes, and I'm one of those firm believers of "you can do anything."

PHILOSOPHY

Many things Ralph Waldo Emerson says.

"First say to yourself what you would be, and then do what you have to do."
-Epictetus

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hanging with a little 3-year-old Italian girl sitting on my guitar case in Milan as I sang songs in English and she bopped her head and waved her hands back and forth while saying "grazie mile" and smiling.
