about

I turn 49 today. And, like most folks, two years in the pandamonium.

For me: It has been about navigating the crazy, the sad while remaining excited about life. While remaining vigilant in my fights for justice. While remaining focused on making this art!!

Four songs about the joys of love, sex & community. In the middle of this crazy, I pray you find some love, sex or community!

This is a great bday!! And I am excited to share this work with you!!
