"Early on in my musical path it came to me that one of my main artistic promptings was to play music that allowed people to feel how beautiful they are. This realization came in my early twenty's. Now decades later that initial prompting has brought me onto this wonderful path of Sound Healing. I could not have imagined then that I would be playing Crystal bowls with my beautiful wife, and through those sounds, percussive rhythms, beautiful melodies and words help enable the listener and myself to attune to the higher self, the true source of our eternal beauty. Life is an interesting journey, and I am grateful to be at this point, and am looking forward to what lies ahead on this magical path."
