I speak at conferences and events to support people in slowing down, allowing them to more fully engage with the present moment and what truly matters. With over two decades of experience working on a national level, I have led conferences, retreats, and student events.
My presentations range from 20 to 90 minutes, and encompass speaking, interactive workshops, and music. I address the unique challenges of our current season, including profound isolation and upheaval, and the fear and anxiety that often accompany them. By taking a moment to be present, we can deepen our sense of safety, uncover our true voice, and foster a stronger sense of connection with others.
Adding a moment of presence unifies attendees, despite differences, and enhances their overall experience while amplifying energy in the room. This can lead to a more powerful experience for each person in the room.I am currently available for speaking engagements in 2023/24 and excited to partner with you!

Masks is my newest single release. I wrote this in the thick of Covid. It’s not a pro or anti statement; it’s a song about being here for each other.
My two solo albums were recorded during and after the life of our beautiful 4th child, Olivia.
Dance Again is my latest solo album. It contains songs of grief – darkness, anger, healing, and hope… my most intimate writing to date.

So Am I is my debut solo album — 4 songs about living with uncertainty, fear, and miracles. I wrote this album during my daughter Olivia’s life — she was not supposed to survive birth, but lived 14 months. She changed our view of life forever.

In 1999 I started the rock band Hello Industry. We toured together for 18 years, released four albums — Matter, MaryAnn, Fooled, a collection of songs about identity and finding your Voice — and spanned several music genres including rock, alternative, folk, worship, electronic, and classical.
Matter is my latest rock album. It's is about wrestling through fear and insecurity to discover our intrinsic value as human beings.
MaryAnn is my sophomore rock album — songs about finding our identity.
Fooled is my very first album, recorded with my band Hello Industry in 2006.
Over the course of our daughter Olivia's life, I wrote two books about grief, healing and rest.
Dance Again: Grief is Healing is a book I wrote at a time in my life when I was experiencing what many of us are experiencing today: uncertainty, fear, and grief.

So Am I: 14 Months of Life, Living, and Letting Go is a collection of my writings during the 14-month life of our beautiful, terminal daughter, Olivia.

Here are some of my favorite appearances: Open To Hope, The People of Peoria, Peoria Music Live, Post Consumer Reports, Upworthy.
I lead workshops and teach courses to help us find connection through the breath and voice in singing, speaking, musicianship, songwriting, and leadership.
For ten years I have studied and practiced voice, breathing, and movement techniques from great traditions such as Alexander, Rodenberg, Linklater, and Fitzmaurice. I have studied in particular how these practices relate to music, human connection, and spiritual presence.

For over twenty years I have led worship at national conferences and churches, coached worship pastors, and trained worship leaders, singers, musicians, and production teams. For 10 years I led one of America’s fastest growing churches’ worship ministry, building a community of musicians, leaders, and technical artists. During this time, I learned the difference between building something which “works” — starting with the end result in mind; using volunteers to reach that goal — and cultivating something which genuinely embodies and reveals the personality and potential of the artists and leaders of a community. My workshops and coaching give tools for achieving the latter.
I have also discovered — through my experience as a pastor and as a human being — ways that worship is already happening in our being, without our trying, and how we can come into harmony with that kind of worship, resulting in a deeper experience of God, of ourselves, and of community. My speaking and workshops give practical tools for exploring this kind of worship.
I present to church leadership teams, worship teams, and entire church communities. My presentations are anywhere from 20-90 minutes and include speaking, workshop-style exploration, and music.
