Ever felt trapped in your mind?

I just got the link to my new TEDx talk last night: How to Get Out of Your Inner Cage

If you’ve ever felt trapped in your mind, if you’ve ever felt like it’s taking FOREVER to get unstuck – watch this 13 minute talk.

It tells WHY I started playing harp – and how the freedom of the harp was paralleled by a lifelong entrapment in a story I was unable to tell. And it explains why I stopped everything for nearly two years between 2021 & 2023 to complete a musical – now on film – that has nothing to do with the harp – and everything to do with my life.

You see, I had a big idea when I was 19. But I didn’t know what it would take to actually LIVE that idea

And so I got trapped…

  • I got trapped by my lack of skill
  • I got trapped in trying to do it all myself.
  • I got trapped in generational stories of success and failure
  • I got trapped thinking I could power through it all myself without accountability, partnership and support.

But slowly I got out of the cage … and the cage got out of me.

Watch my TEDx Talk to learn how I got out of my Inner Cage.

See the cage that got out of me.
