Dearest listeners,

I wrote my first song when I was a teenager. I don’t know where it came from but I’ve continued to listen to that voice within that urges me to pick up my pen and write it down. 

I was born and raised just 5 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean in South Florida, but I’ve now spent just as much time living near the riverbanks of the Ohio in Cincinnati. 

I spend a lot of time reading stories and hiking the trails near my home. I love rescue dogs and cooking good food. 

I’ve made a handful of records since 2002, toured with many wonderful and life-giving musicians and writers, and I’ve found myself walking paths I could never have dreamed. 

I’ve learned to embrace the unknown and the uncertain, and I’ve found gratefulness, forgiveness and a fresh mind to be the most sacred of all practices. 

I’m glad to be alive and to be making music, and hope to make music until the very end. 

Thank you for being here with me and thank you for listening.
