I'm a passionate musician and avid student of life who treats work as play. My mission is to connect with people through music, and I am always looking for new ways of expression through large collaborative ventures.

Here are some projects that might peak your interest: My vocal and body improvisation workshop
VOXPLORATION; a new online journal for artists called All Roads Lead You Home (a place where poets, writers, musicians and visual artists can submit their work for exposure and possible collaborations), and if you are a musician and enjoy new music, you may want to check you the Call For Guitarists" Series, which will have its second edition soon. Thanks for visiting !
