Its taken me 24 years to find everything I have ever wanted. Love, family, possibility, wonder, confidence. Since I've been found, Pandora's Box has been open and the universe has been taking care of me.
“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed.” – Terence McKenna
Music, art and love drive me.
I play 6 instruments in varying degrees of good and bad. Guitar is my love. I also play bass, banjo, ukulele, violin, and keyboard.
I am finally coming to terms that punk rock got me here but I am far from just a punk rocker anymore. I am very much a folk guitar player, who is a hippie at heart with a bit of punk rock roughness around the corners.
Other than being a musician, I also consider myself to be a poet, artist (i can draw/sketch), photographer, graphic designer.
"Come with me
And face the strange
Find the others
"I ponder a thought from yesterday and sigh
What if it really was my time to die?"
I have photographed lots of bands and artists, most notably: Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), H.R. (Bad Brains), Modern English, Swingin Utters, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) Zander Schloss (Circle Jerks / Joe Strummer). Lots more.
My favorite albums of all time, or as it stands today are;
The Clash - London Calling
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust
The Kinks - Lola Versus Powerman and the Money Go Round
