I love music. I love to listen to it, discover it, and add it to moments throughout the day. I also love to make it. I’m self-taught on a few different instruments and I love to sing. I’m slowly (very slowly) working on a catalog of original material, and one day I hope to put together an album. Not a “get famous” album, but a “this is me” album. An album for me. I’ll probably put some info about it here.

I’ve recorded one tune, and mostly I just listen to it to remember that time of my life. It’s here for you to listen to.

I Won’t Look Away
I wrote this tune a few years ago during a time when I was having a hard time coping with my feelings. My family is not very good at handling emotion (though I did not know it at the time), and so I had a tendency to avoid dealing with pain until it was so overwhelming that I had to disconnect from everything to prevent anything else from piling on. Combine that with an excessively busy lifestyle, and I was in a real bad way. The heart of the tune is that in my efforts to avoid my feelings, they became all I could think about.

Life is great now that I’ve worked hard on recovering from my codependency, learning how to feel and live every moment instead of cynically judging moments as I watched them pass by.

Thanks for listening!
