I love the kids.
I used to be one. So did you. It took a village to raise me. As an adult, I realize I'm part of a lot of kids' villages. That's an important job. I don't take it lightly. And kids have big dreams. I believe the most important work is making sure those dreams inform our future. Through an integrated professional life, I am able to lead with this philosophy in a variety of settings including work with nonprofits, social enterprises, educational institutions and for-profit companies. I am passionate about culture that values the uniqueness in individual and community voices in order to thrive in a sustainable way.

Music is the universal language that connects us at a soul level. I use this medium to create moments of universal connectedness.

The word "educate" comes from the Latin roots "e" + "ducere." This literally translates to "bring forth that which is within." All work and collaboration I participate in aids in the self-actualization of young people.

I believe that we need new culturally rich narratives. It is not enough to simply present the "what," we must push ourselves - through vulnerability - to tell and own our truth and journey: the "why" and the "how" of it all.
