Women as Weapons, a new photojournalism project I have started, is now shooting! If you are a female-identifying weapons or martial arts practitioner or enthusiast, and you might want to participate, please drop me a line! The project will consist of photos and personal interviews exploring the theme of female warriorhood in the 21st century.
My ensemble, Geek Musica, will be performing with Blood Moon (which I am also a member of) on February 22nd to raise funds for Aleppo's survivors. We will be contributing funds to The White Helmets and Doctors Without Borders specifically for their work in Aleppo. If you can attend, please buy a ticket! This concert will take place in Albany, New York. Even if you cannot attend but want to help, consider purchasing a ticket anyway to help support us, the Albany Barn (our hosts), and these fine organizations who do such incredible and essential work.

I started a new music project called Umbra Oceania that is Pagan folk and classical music. Right now, I'm working on its first work, "The Orphium," which will be a collection of some of the Orphic hymns set to music plus some original material. Follow me on Facebook: facebook.com/umbraoceania
On a much more personal note, I have recently found myself without a permanent residence. While I'm dealing fairly well with it, it can't go on forever, and I am asking all my supporters to donate $1 or more per month to my Patreon so I can secure permanent housing again. Mental illness and homelessness do not pair well together, and I need your help! $1 per month as a patron will gain you access to ALL the material I post to my patrons-only stream, including music, photographs, short stories and even novels, so pledge if you can!

Thank you for your support!
