I live to connect with that electricity and possibility of pure inspiration. Without inspiration, we are lost. For me, a connection can happen through listening to music, collaboration with a filmmakers and other visual creatives, being a catalyst for a music student to connect with the power of music, creating a new piece of music that didn't exist before or by just saying "Yes".
From my studio in Seattle, Washington I have connected and collaborated with creative folks around the world. Industry Nine, Duct Tape Then Beer, Patagonia, Ian McGee, Barry Thompson, Reel Water Productions, Mario Quintana and Juniper Media are some of the awesome creatives I've worked with recently alongside brands like Outdoor Research, REI, The North Face, Patagonia and Red Bull Media House.
Award winning films, friends and fun have come from these collaborations and I'm incredibly proud that 17 years worth of current and former students are out there playing music in the world. Oh yeah, and I've been known to play a little bit of rock. It's a pretty good life. Please reach out and say hello if you are inspired!
