About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Preparing humanity in tangible ways for surviving the future.

ABOUT ME

My passion is to perform and exhibit. My main mission right now is to improve at music. I believe in the good in people. I adapt well to new cultures but keep my own beliefs.

PHILOSOPHY

Very shortly we humans are going to be experiencing the decline in industry and production. The excess waste of the 20th and early 21st centuries--what was considered "trash"--will become very valuable to our survival. There is a current youth trend that readily acknowledges these facts. This new hip youth, has realized that they are surrounded by things amassed from the past one-hundred years of excess. They are privileged to have free access to post-consumer waste: Clothes, Furniture, Houses, Media, Food. Choosing to avoid contributing to the self-destructive culture of over-production and cheap throw-away convenience products. These youth are constructing their identity, style, art, music, gardens, living rooms and dinners from "trash."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once found myself in the middle of a forest in Michigan. Where a day earlier a bridge had been struck by lightning. And the ground had cracked. And from the ground came new source of fresh water. I climbed the to the top of a large mound of clay where the water came out.
