Over the last 15 years my work has expanded in unexpected, and unexpectedly powerful, ways.
I’ve learned to bring the craft of songwriting off the stage, out of the studio, and into the lives of people who wouldn’t normally have the chance to experience its transformative power.
Working with groups and individuals, in private sessions and within companies, I’ve begun to use collaborative songwriting as a way to give others a unique tool for seeing themselves and their world in new ways, resolving conflicts, and deepening their understanding of their lives. In songwriting workshops, I help beginners and those already drawn to the craft find ways to renew creativity and spark self-expression. Speaking to conferences and corporate gatherings, songs and story combine to tell a story about things I’ve learned as a working artist and how these lessons can help others achieve a more meaningful workplace. The Be An Artist Program inspires passion and imagination in students of all ages. On university campuses I lead workshops on pursuing a purpose-filled life through trusting your creative instincts.
Through all these different but deeply connected approaches, my goal is to help people recognize that we are all creative, that everyone has a story, and each of us has a unique capacity to move the world.
And maybe we can write a song about it.
