I Write Songs and Make Music

I am a songwriter, producer, and performer. I've been recording music for twenty-five years.

I Run a Community

Since its inception in 2014, The Haven has been a space for gentle rebels to meet, explore, and rest alongside one another without judgement, pressure, or expectation.

Highly sensitive people might see, feel, and experience things differently, so we learn to wear masks and reshape our natural preferences to fit the mould. The Haven is somewhere to (re)discover, befriend, and come home to who you are beneath those protective layers built up over time.
