I am a Detroit native, who has spend the majority of his adult life in the fertile lands of the Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Portland and Olympia). After a lucrative career in Seattle running a music festival and working as a music supervisor/creative director, I traded in the rain for sunny Los Angeles.
As a musician, deejay, audio engineer, performer, producer, curator and entrepreneur; I've dedicated my life to music in all its forms. Through my work I've had the immeasurable pleasure of attending over a hundred unique music festivals across 12 different countries. During these journeys I have met hundreds of inspiring people, many of whom remain dear friends and colleagues. Over the years I've come to appreciate music as a universal language that has the distinct power to unite humanity regardless of race, age, sex or geography.
Outside of music and travel, I am an avid outdoorsman, film aficionado, writer, reader, and connoisseur of fine food and culture in general. My favorite type of food is Thai, my favorite film is "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and my favorite book is "Plexus" by Henry Miller.
In recent years I've developed a deep appreciation for yoga and mindfulness. I firmly believe that without a healthy mind/body balance it is impossible to achieve inner or outer peace in the world. I am optimistic that humans can obtain this balance and that we're evolving towards it each day.
I'm driven by an intrinsic beauty that for me is most apparent when I stop and contemplate that we're all just floating through infinite space on a spec of dust called earth. In the words of my favorite author, Henry Miller "The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
Regardless of whether it is an experience, idea, place, book, film, song, or restaurant; I love to share. If anything, I am too passionate about those people, places and things that I hold dear to my heart.
For those familiar with the Myers-Briggs personality test, I am an INFJ (introversion, intuition, feeling, judging). "The INFJ personality type is very rare, making up less than one percent of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. As Diplomats, they have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is the accompanying Judging (J) trait – INFJs are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact.
INFJs tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all."
That just about sums it up. Hopefully our paths cross in the not too distant future.
