In case you're wondering what motivates me to do what I do, this is the place to find out.
1. Without a doubt, I am most motivated to create this website so that I can share my music with as many people as possible. Whether or not I make money with this endeavor, I am driven to write music and have people hear it and a website is a great place to start.
2. If I can swing it, however, I would like to make money with my musical endeavors. My biggest material goal in life is to be able to make a living with my music. This website, and the purpose for creating it, is a giant step towards living that dream.
3. To fulfill the above two objectives, I want to create a site that is a place where people can find the tools to create their own personal refuge. I want to provide products, services, and ideas that help people construct a special place to escape from the distractions of everyday life, whether it be a physical place, an inner place, or both. I want to help people find ways to focus their mental efforts on creating a better personal life and a better world.
4. I want to teach people to recognize that an endless source of inspiration (artistic, scientific, and spiritual) is available to anyone who is willing to connect with the natural world.
5. I want people to experience the grand awe and wonder of nature's mysteries, the fulfillment of exploration, and to feel the joy, excitement and thrill of discovery. I want people to realize that this way of experiencing nature is a place where reality seems to border on magic.
6. I want to give back! A portion of this sites proceeds will go to preserve wild places. It was wild places that provided me with so much of the inspiration to create my music, so it is only fitting that I do what I can to preserve such inspiring places for all to experience.
