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 ;)
