Currently serving in my 27th year as an educator. I am also a musician and have contributed some of my music to film projects, an activity I would like to pursue with greater frequency in the years ahead. Samples of my work can be found at the Sound Cloud and Myspace links provided on this page.
I am hoping to "break ground" on the Ariel's Wood project once my career winds down as a educator--circa 2013.
Areas of Expertise
Teacher, Composer, Writer
An idea worth spreading
I am hoping to establish a retreat center based in western North Carolina--Ariel's Wood. Ariel’s Wood is an offering to those who seek a place for contemplative retreat and a gathering place for those who wish to enrich human experience through a cultivation of common ground in the Arts and Sciences.
I'm passionate about
Music, movement, and meditation & prayer.
Talk to me about
For Profit vs Non-Profit Funding. Eco-design. Digital Arts. Anything that seeks a common vision in arts, science, and spirituality.
People don't know I'm good at
Musical composition. Poetry. Journalism.
My TED story
Looking forward to networking with folks who may be able to assist with Ariel's Wood project. The idea would be to have a place that allows people to find the silence that feeds the creative process as well as providing an outlet for artists / thinkers to share their work -- either in a coffeehouse setting or in art exhibits / installations/ lectureships. .
