Hello, I’m happy you’re here.

I’m a contemplative, poet, writer, contemplative, silence facilitator and spiritual mentor. Your guide to silence. If you’re not already familiar with me, you might like to listen to the conversation of silence and words I shared with the Encountering Silence podcast team earlier this year.
