Motivation

My house is an ideal place for nurturing ideas, developing things, and concentrating on implementing them. This is facilitated by the peaceful and natural environment of Porano. Supporting and preserving spaces for artists to create and thrive has been a cause I’ve long championed. Therefore, I would love to share my space with other artists and offer it as a retreat. Given my penchant for engaging with fellow artists, I invite you to come here and exchange ideas.

Coaching:

I offer music coaching sessions, if needed and requested aimed at fostering a focused approach to your projects.
