Growing older has graced me with an evolving sense of peace as I unfold into simply the being of myself. And yet there are still questions to be asked…what defines me, what do I care so much about that I am willing to step out in faith to achieve or stand up for?
My youthful angst led me on a journey searching for what would bring me joy and peace in my heart and along this path I travelled to far off lands, trying my hand at countless jobs and careers. I spent time living in Egypt teaching scuba diving, then living in Mexico as I moved into underwater photography. Water and the sea is such an integral part of my being and I was nourished by these environments. Despite living in my paradise, something was still missing for me and moving back to the UK I continued exploring my creative urges with commercial photography, filming and producing, specialising in underwater work. The journey continued with freelance journalism, presenting and voiceover but it wasn’t until I gave myself permission to start writing songs that I finally felt the burden of doubt lifted from my heart. I was able to explore and express all that I had kept locked deep inside and begin to breathe deeply into my essence.
This is where I am on the path now. I am writing music and in doing so I am beginning to see myself emerge and peel off the layers that I hid behind for so long. But that is not all that there is in me. I love to explore the unconventional, the progressive, the challenge of finding alternatives to the ‘norm’. My life reflects this, from my choices in my home and day-to-day life and how I eat, even how I wash and clean as I look to minimise my impact on the environment and care for myself and my family, all the way back to how I think, and feel at my core.
I wanted to share a site and blog that reflects everything about me and not only my music…’the essence of my instincts’…and to put myself out to be part of the great global dialogue, connecting with others that might feel something, anything similar to me…
