Stay in Touch! (Email Lists)

Hello friends!

Thanks for your interest in all the creative ways I enjoy expressing myself. I’ve created this page as a “one stop shop” for everything I do. If you want to sign up for everything, then you can do that! The first form will get you on every list below.

I’m moving away from social media for promotion, so email lists are now the primary way I let people know about what I’m up to. It goes without saying that I take your privacy and attention seriously, you’ll only get thoughtful, relevant emails/texts from me, and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Thank you for supporting what I do, it means the world to me.


I want it all! (All lists below)

I like your attitude.

Signing up for this will get you on every list below. It will also get you my sincere gratitude for trusting that I really do put a lot of care and effort into everything I do.

Boodaism Essays (delivered to your inbox)

Every time I finish an essay, I send to my readers. It’s also a great way to hear from people directly, email responses to my writing is something I deeply appreciate.

Workshops & Events in San Diego

I love hosting events, everything from cuddle parties to self-development. If you’d like to be the first to know what I’m up to, this is the list for you.


IntimacyFest is a 4-day retreat in San Diego, California that teaches people relationship skills through hands-on workshops and immersion in community. We started in 2015 and it’s held in June of every year. Currently it’s on hold until I find a new place to host it that’s inspiring, if you have any ideas (Southern California area please), email me!

This is a general email list related to me releasing new music, and folks who want to stay up to date on my music career. You can find more info about this (and listen to my new album) at

Songwriters-in-the-Round Concert Series

For about 4 years I ran a concert series where I brought 2 other songwriters together and we played shows at The Emerald Village, where I used to live. Currently I’m traveling but when I return to San Diego I will most likely start this up again, and this is the best way to hear about that.

Darkness Retreats

In November 2022 I hosted my first retreat completely in the dark. 100% pitch black for 3 days. It was a huge success! I can’t wait to do more, currently I plan on holding events twice a year (spring and fall) in the San Diego area. If you’d like to get notified when the next one goes live, sign up below.
