“Shapeshifting is when you look at a dimension of your life that’s working and you get into the vibratory field of that and you literally shift it into the area of your life where there’s stagnation…” —Michael Beckwith

Shapeshifter Manifesto

I believe in the journey
That we are all connected as one
The truth and the contradiction
both occupying the same space at the same time
Every breath is a prayer
Where we decide the future in the present moment
Creating our own momentum for change

Three years in the making, I am proud to announce that my debut album Adventures of a Shapeshifter is finally complete! This album reflects my journey of oscillating between the many roles I play personally and professionally while simultaneously integrating all aspects of myself within my identity. I am truly honored to share it with you. Enjoy!
