I create music & experiences that
remind you why you’re on this planet.
I think you have something our world needs.
I think you have something unique inside of you that the world needs. It’s the mixed cocktail of where you’ve been, what you love and your unique DNA. It’s the thing that keeps you tossing in bed at night and makes your heart rate rise like a first date when you think about it. It’s that thing that keeps popping up over the years and haunts you like a good kind of addiction.
Some people call it a purpose but that word feels small to me.
It’s more like a way of living and being that allows us to be fully awake, alive, fully human.
I think a lot of us get glimpses of it here and there but are so caught up in the upkeep of our lives that we miss it. Suddenly we wake up and we feel like life has trapped us. We are out of sync. Out of tune. Just moving. Just noise.
I’m here to help you tune in.
I create music and experiences that remind you why you are on this planet.
Guided Concert Experiences
Art and music have the ability to transcend our monkey brain logic and plug us into something mysterious and beautiful. Art and music have the ability to reconnect us to our purpose in a way that words alone fail to do. The experiences I create use music, silence and contemplation to reconnect us to this purpose and deepen the connection between us.
In your home
Invite your family and friends to an intentionally curated evening of music and connection. My home experiences offer an intimate, guided concert right in the comfort of your living room. Create a memorable opportunity for those closest to you to breathe deep and be reminded why they are on this planet together. A unique, high-end alternative to a traditional party or a way to deepen the sense of community in your neighborhood.
With your team
Inject a dose of creativity and purpose into your team with an experience that will empower the individual and deepen the interpersonal connection between team members. Investing a couple hours together in a a guided concert experience that tunes people into their unique purpose has the potential to unlock a new levels of confidence and unity in your organization. Customizations are available for teams looking to infuse their unique values into the experience.
WITH your SPIRITUAL COMMUNITY
Create a unique experience for your church or spiritual community members to be reminded who they were created to be. My favorite church gatherings are the ones where we all walk away feeling more deeply connected to the Divine, each other and in greater connection with our reason for being alive. Tapping into my years of experience in spiritual communities, I can work with your team to help create liturgies and unique worship services that do just that.
