About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explore, dig in, learn, and write about my experiences!

ABOUT ME

I am a musician, primarily a drummer/percussionist. I love being in new places, meeting new people, speaking languages other than my mother tongue. I love painting and drawing, cooking and eating, thinking and discussing.

PHILOSOPHY

I try to question my motives, think things through, and then plunge in and try to get the deepest into life that I can. I try to excel wherever I am, and however I can. I strive to do no harm to feelings or bodies. I am beginning to truly believe that, with conscious and sustained effort, and through the grace of God, many things become possible.... I can learn new skills, open my mind to new ways of seeing the world... One door closes, another opens...We are all taken care of...we get what we need to live!
