Below is a gallery of recent beauty through my eyes from this past week. Grateful to reunite with friends and family as new conversations unfold and new ideas begin to bloom. Drum & Flow Daily Zoom Class has been a beautiful new daily ritual brightening my days and connecting me with my partner. I’ve been back to surfing and biking every morning, continuing to eat clean, and taking more action to implement more contentment to my mornings. Being back in nature everyday is the Grounding I have been subconsciously seeking. Awaking for an early morning workout in nature before drumming and creating soundscape for Drum & Flow gives me a deep sense of comfort and gratitude that I get to enjoy the contents of my days, gather my inspirations, and shine my light.
I’d like to thank everyone who helped me along my path this year, those who supported and influenced me, and those whom I’ve had the privilege to work with this year. You all inspire me and give me the strength and understanding to continue toward my goals and lessons. I appreciate all the opportunities I’ve been blessed with this year, and look forward to continuing to cultivate my skills, feelings, abilities, and passions.
With love in my heart, I present to you a new project title and purpose. NewYorkWild.Life is a self-assessment, a look inward to define what I can express outward, and an honest interpretation of what I’ve found within and wish to share in hopes of inspiring and entertaining.
I am grateful to be in the company of my partner, Agave L’amour. Your constant support and inspiration keeps wind in my sails, and continues to prove the impossible is only what we allow to beat us. You are a great teacher and beautiful human, and I thank you for everything. Here’s to so many more impossibly beautiful moments with you. Tqm
Great night at the museum! Dancers, artists, speakers, poets, and sound artists collaborated live for the Brooklyn Performance Combine.

Not so unlike the historic Theater Event #1 that took place at Black Mountain College during the summer of 1952, andNorte Maar’s own End of the World performance at English Kills, The Brooklyn Performance Combine Event unites all art forms in a fusion of poetry, sound, dance, and performance in a single cohesive 120-minute event. It will be epic.
A timer will start the countdown for the performance. Each artist will be programmed to begin and end at a time designated through chance operations within the 120-minute interval. At times a poet will be reading while a sound artist is performing. A dancer will enter, perform and depart. Sounds will overlap. There will be silence. Every aspect of the performance will be unrehearsed, live, spontaneous, and uninterrupted. Audiences can come and go as the event clock ticks out of time.
