Anxiety is a very commen topic these days with so much uncertainty and fear happening in the world. But what if it's not always about us? 
...does nature get anxiety?

This summer I'm reviving my reflections series Morning Maté to stir up some thoughts of the day and open up the concept this week on how we can tap the wisdom of nature to keep us from getting lost in our wandering monkey brains. Oh, and the importance of doggy eyebrows! Haha  

Check out my thoughts on it below (during my final days managing Cas...

I'm excited to finally release the 3rd set in my celebrated Vibras del Mundo series!

It's an hour journey with a mix of 30 tracks that have helped me connect into my body and appreciation for the sounds and languages from cultures around the globe. Music can - and will - transcend anything.

It feels SO good to be back creating and recording music! My two song release The Maderas EP  is out now with the tracks Polaris (think Bibio meets Shakey Graves on a beach) and Meet My Maker ft Felisha Ariana (a world beat hand pan medicine song) is now streaming on Youtube and Soundcloud 🙌❤️

The music was recorded during our Momentom Collective Artist Residency in Maderas, Nicaragua. Big thank you to Joe DeFaria aka DJ and Production wizard J Pool and to Aria Felisha for coming in and singing and improvising so bea...

Hi friends,

sooooo it's been a while since I've reached out with my monthly newsletter...and how the world has changed since! Here's the roller coaster last 3.5 months managing Momentom Collective in a nutshell:
 

  • we wrapped up our Circus Castle Artist Residency and Vegan Resto in Guatemala as well choreographed a full one hour show for Cosmic Convergence Festival over NYE!
     

  • we simultaneously ran a Residency in Nicaragua focusing on social circus and choreographing a big performance for Envision Festival in Costa...

How do YOU define true freedom?

What role does vulnerability play with creating art and liberation?

...How does dramatic music effect the believability of a concept? 😋✌️

I was asked to join the Freedom Culture Podcast at the SuperHero Academy Camp in the jungles of Envision Festival in Costa Rica. A beautiful conversation with Julian Guderley ensued that you can watch the dramatic power cut above or the full video podcast below:

In personal news, this last week I've finally made it back home to Canada after 10 months abroad...
