A Gnostic. I like strange stuff. Aliens. UFOs. The Paranormal. Ancient mysteries. I write music out of awe and wonder of the world around me.

My Interest in Music

I've been obsessed with music since I was seven years old. I spent most of my early adult life writing music, pursuing fantastic delusions, and establishing endearing stories. Each piece I wrote became more complex and insightful than the ones before. I've played in a small chamber orchestra and produced hundreds of my own songs. I believe there is something magical in musical expression and I am convinced it is one of the most direct paths to self-discovery available. When you listen to my music, whatever you take away from it, however you interpret my lyrics or my choice of topics, know that when I wrote it, there was something going on in my life, or in this world, that I was compelled to represent. Thanks for listening.
