Music is not something I do, it's who I am. I'm a musical nomad wandering a little west of normal. A gypsy poet living vicariously through myself.
I'm a west-coast singer/songwriter, performer, composer that has had the fortunate opportunity to work with so many local Seattle bands. I have had the honor and the privilege to work with Malfunkshun, Wratchethead, Klover Jane, Dog Bone Sanctuary, Killing Faith, Double Tongue, Agents of Chaos and also my own band, Years of War, as well as Seattle's own Alice in Chains tribute, Jar of Flies. I have been so blessed to work with so many amazing people!
P.S.A. - Remember kids:
If you camp out for a new game, or a new computer or for the latest new phone, then you are being a good American and helping America become great again! But if you camp out for clean water, social justice, civil rights or the environment then you're just a dirty, hippie loving/terrorist and you will be threatened, maced and arrested for being a threat to the very fiber of our nation.
FORGET THE WALL!
America needs to build a GIANT MIRROR & reflect on what we've become!
"I don't give them hell. I just tell the truth and they think it is hell." ~Harry S. Truman “Violators cannot live with the truth: survivors cannot live without it. There are those who still, once again, are poised to invalidate and deny everything. If we don't assert our truth, it may again be just relegated to 'fantasy'. But the truth won't go away. It will keep surfacing until it is recognized. Truth will outlast any campaigns mounted against it, no matter how mighty, clever, or long. It is invincible. It's only a matter of which generation is willing to face it and, in so doing, protect future generations.” ~Chrystine Oksana "Come out of the masses. Stand alone like a Lion and live your life according to your own Light." ~Osho
I just got word from camp. They need insulation for the camp kitchen to keep as much of the heat in as possible. Everything is freezing so the fresh produce is not lasting very long and they are using a majority of their fuel just trying to thaw things out for consumption.
Now, we will be able to address a majority of these concerns when we get there, immediately, but we will be needing more cash donations in order to make sure that we are able to get enough insulation for all three of the kitchen tents. It is what it is.
Let's keep these people alive and warm. It is the holidays. Help us keep these people alive and warm. This is not a foreign country. This is the United States of America and we are fighting for not only water, but our Earth and our future, as well as our children's future and the future of our grandchildren.
Be well and be blessed, abundantly!

A detailed and exhaustive list of the things the President-elect cannot and will not, ever change.
1. Your Purpose
Materialist view India as a developing country.
Spiritualist view America as a developing country.
Trust the universal process.
When you believe it, you will see it.
No amount of guilt can change the past.
No amount of anxiety can change the future.
Trust the universal process and be at peace. TRUST IT!
When you believe it, you will see it.
How much are you prepared to stand out from the crowd? Stand out not because you are special, or beautiful, or have the best of everything, but because you are who YOU are!
The unique, the different, the non-conformist, the alternative rebels of sorts; you don't look the same, you dress and think differently and you're the ones that "society" prefers to leave on the outskirts in order to silence and ignore.
Well, "society" is failing humanity and now it is up to us. Now is the time for the radicals, the renegades and the ones that are prepared to take the risk of sacrificing parts of our time, our energy, ourselves and our well-being to show that we have the guts for action in order to push the boundaries of this limited sandbox.
Ultimately, it's up to those of you who are willing to be the ones that will help change the world one soul at a time. Your radical role has much to do with healing this planet.
No pain. No gain.
