I try not to kill the grass. When you stomp around too long and run the same path day in and day out, you end up killing the grass. And by accident, form your own rut. I want to be like water, able to follow the path of least resistance. (Not less work!)  Sometimes this is called opportunity. I intend to form a great work of art made up of this stuff called life. Maybe leave something behind like the Grand Canyon and then lift off into the Great Ocean before starting all over again.

A few words about me: musician, music teacher in Portland ME, husband, dad, son, brother, uncle, friend, fisherman, poet, Dean of Students, Rise and Shine Coordinator, song writer, dreamer and lover of the growth mindset.


Hello and welcome to my website. I have decided to design a website with a guiding concept in mind : to examine and develop my personal beliefs in relationship to my projects and personal development. 
I will look back through my experiences and bring myself up to date to where I am now.
