I am “The Working Class Superhero”, and I'm not afraid to say what I feel, both in my songwriting and in my life. I'm a political, social, and environmental activist; I've participated in beach cleanups, breast cancer research fundraisers, war protests, civil rights demonstrations, and animal rescue events. I even once organized a rally at my Congresswoman's office because no one else would volunteer to do it.
The Heroes Against Hunger Concerts were started when I discovered the San Diego Food Bank after an underattended party left so much food uneaten that I simply couldn't bear to throw it away. Since then, Heroes Against Hunger has raised over a thousand dollars and five hundred pounds of food for the Food Bank, a fact that I am very proud of and very humbled by.
In addition to being the singer/songwriter for the band, I am a writer, a photographer, and a solo artist, often partnering with my dear friend and fellow singer/songwriter Allison Lonsdale to do shows. Most of all, I am a lover of life, and I hope that my music conveys that love to everyone who listens.
