FUTURE

As much as I’d love to volunteer with every great cause that comes my way, there are simply not enough hours in a day! This is why I now offer CONSULTATION to individuals, businesses, non-profits & more! Whether you’re looking for the right connections, some fresh ideas, a live performance, music lessons, or strategies for your next project, I may help you at a rate of $1/min. Project-based pricing is also available on a case-by-case basis. What can I say? I have been in high demand! Contact me here.


OTHERWISE, I’LL JUST BE TRYING TO GET IN TOUCH WITH MY INNER SELF AND WORK ON ARTISTIC PROJECTS THAT HAVE BEEN WAITING IN THE WINGS. Stay tuned & in touch with the rare, occasional newsletter and on the good ol’ social media & interwebs.
