About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To experience a deeper connection to my creative self and to all things, and to cultivate an attitude of 'Why not?' and 'So what!'

ABOUT ME

I'm currently working as an actor and singer, so my schedule varies a lot. That's why I'm listed as a 'maybe' couch. I'm a big fan of Celtic (particularly Irish) music. If you play, sing, or just enjoy live Irish music, I'm happy to take you to a seisun (jam session) anytime I'm going.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that all people and things are connected, and that resisting that connection causes all sorts of suffering.

Interests

Singing Celtic music, a little folk and bluegrass, Irish dance (great exercise!), great food, cooking, passionate theatre, independent movies, yoga, learning to live green, spending time with friends

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Allow me to toot my own horn for a moment...
I sang in Irish on Irish-language radio. I was at a traditional music and dance festival. Being an American and a non-Irish speaker that was a bit of a novelty. But I do have a handful of songs in Irish, and I was asked to sing one. After I finished, a gentleman asked me if I'd like to be on the radio. After I figured out he wasn't kidding, I said sure!

Teach, Learn, Share

I recently learned a few great tools to help calm yourself in anxious situations. 1)If someone is talking, listen for the silences in-between the sounds of their voice. 2)If you have too many thoughts going on, try "looking" for where each thought subsides, or goes to, when it's done. Just keep looking until the next thought comes along, then follow the new thought and look for where it subsides. It's great for quieting the mind!
