Sometimes, pangs perform in poetry.  And sometimes, pangs perform in music.


Much of my writing/performing process begins with music.  Like Quentin Tarantino, I can't begin to write without compiling some sort of soundtrack for each play.  It's here where you get a few windows into my writing inspirations and process through PLAYLists I've pieced together in Spotify...and a few extras.


Extras?  Yep!  I don't just listen to music; I can produce it, too!  Music serves as therapy when the writing process fails to produce anything (or development's a bit slow).  Think of these pick-me-ups - failed American Idol auditions that will never be, but succeed in getting past roadblocks in my "life process."


All of them are more for my sake - trust me, they are by no means perfect.   But they're part of my artistic process...and here you'll find access to me most lyrical.
