Intro

Welcome to my small piece of the internet; a place for me to share a bit about myself and the things that are important to me.

Like you, I am many things... father, friend, musician, developer, photographer, adventurer, dreamer... Most importantly I believe in kindness and reason. Well considered reason leads to understanding and appreciation of the people we encounter in life.

I believe in listening. Just because culturally or socially we behave as though a subject has been settled, it doesn't mean that opposing or marginalized viewpoints are invalid. No honest person has ever stopped learning.

Intro

Music

Music has always been an integral part of my life; it is the means by which I explain and make sense of my world.

Original Works

Original Works

I have found that my songs have grown to not only express emotions, but an idea; hope. Life has given us many logical reasons to abandon dreams for self-preservation. While resting in the chaos and hardship that engulfs our world, I invite you to abandon reason with me and embrace optimism.

Covers

Covers

There are many covers of Leonard Cohen's classic song, Hallelujah and some might say that it's been over played. However, I had never found a cover of Hallelujah that sounded as I heard it in my head.

This unique arrangement switches up the style a bit and includes some lesser known stanzas.
