Right now, I'm redesigning my entire life. A bit of very recent news shot me like a pinball in a completely different direction and the only thing to do of course is to roll with it. Just a few years ago, I learned to let go of control and it has become immensely useful in everyday life, but an essential tool in my crisis/change kit. I've spent the last 6 years working with kids in alternative music education. And although the rewards and things I learned about myself while teaching and administrating teachers were endlessly valuable, I still wanted to incite greater change and reach more people who simply lacked access. When Haiti was struck by disaster in 2010, I had the good fortune of donating by designing a website and logo for Physicians For Haiti. To see how that has grown into http://www.equalhealth.org/ over the years is awe inspiring and I want that kind of creation and evolution to come from what I put out into the world. I had a great experience landing a grant to get 14 students a full year scholarship to music school in Chicago this year and that just lit me up. That kind of work, is of great interest to me. In my grand redesign, I will be expanding my vocabulary of both code and music, just languages... I've been coding in HTML/CSS for 6 years, project managed relational database websites for the medical industry and I want to extend my skills into CSS certification. A sharp focus on country guitar lead playing and regular co-writes to generate more songs for my catalog and discover more extensions of my song writing self by trusting in collaboration. Somehow, all of this will find its way into the songs on this site, informing them, informing me and my greatest hope, helping people somewhere get what it is they need to take a step closer to becoming what they want to be.
