Welcome to my website. I am a Seattle based singer songwriter.  I mainly play piano and I like to improvise. Currently I am in the throes of learning to play the ukulele.

Newest news:
I am starting on to be Patreon. The official launch was on my  birthday, May 26 at 8:30am PST with a streaming show. Patreon streaming shows are going to be on Saturday MORNINGS. Kind of a "music to eat your your breakfast to" kind of vibe. 

Patreon is a platform where artists and their people get to be together. It is very direct to share content, it is interactive and community building and I hope you will join me for the Patreon Journey.

Patrons will be getting monthly blog reflections, monthly live streaming shows, free downloads + Other Good Things


Thank you so much for supporting my music!

There's a wonderful Songwriters In Seattle Showcase that I host up at the Den  - it is 3rd Saturday of the month, 7-9pm. It would be nice to see you there.

 I have a Debut EP out,  called "Cairns".

Listen to it on Spotify!
It is also available for sale as a digital download on Bandcamp. It is available digitally in all the usual places.

I have made a small batch of limited edition physical CDs of Cairns, available only through me (lol). Contact me via email. 


“a mound of rough stones built as a memorial or landmark, typically on a hilltop or skyline.” 

Songwriting is a way I make cairns.

So glad you are here and to have you traveling with me on this musical adventure.
