About Me


Writing music, Podcasting, Learning


I'm a singer, composer, podcaster. I enjoy cooking, and good coffee. I have an insatiable appetite for knowledge.
I search for the hidden magic in the world.


Be good to people.

I produce a podcast on cutting edge cultural, scientific and societal phenomena.


I also make live electronica with my band Beacon Bloom


If either sound intriguing feel free to czech them out ;)
