I just released a new video to accompany a track from The Animal Album, “Their Eyes.” The piece was inspired by a Los Angeles Animal Save vigil I attended for the hundreds of pigs being killed at Farmer John’s Slaughterhouse that night. I remain haunted by the expression on the faces of the pigs in those trucks. “Their Eyes” was composed for piano, string quartet, and electronics.
I am so incredibly excited to share that The Animal Album and The Animal Book are available NOW! There are lots of places you can find both of these things so here’s a handy dandy link to find the album, and a handy dandy link to find the book. I am happy for you to purchase, stream, or order the physical book from any of these places, but especially grateful if you order from my Bandcamp page where you get a free album download with book purchase and I can even sign your book if you like!

I am so excited to announce that my new single, “Home Again,” has been released out into the world! The track is from my forthcoming album, The Animal Album, and is a dedication to my dog, Corky. She was my friend when I was an adolescent, a gay kid feeling lonely and scared about where I would fit in 1980’s Houston, TX. I still love her so much, and she saw me through such a difficult time.

Fellow activist/artist Unparalleled Suffering has just released this documentary about Kaporos in Brooklyn that features music that I wrote just for the film. I don’t know of a more dedicated or passionate person, and it is quite evident when you see this film. He was staying with me much of the time he was shooting Kaporos, and he was out on the streets for the bulk of the days he was in Brooklyn. If you’re looking for another person to support on Patreon, make him your guy. Continue reading →
I just got home from running another Ragnar Relay race with my beloved Strong Hearts Vegan Power running team. I had a great time and will share a video on my YouTube channel about the weekend ASAP, but while I was out there I realized I haven’t properly explained what the hell is going on with me this summer and my tour. The short story is that I am doing a Summer tour of my solo theater piece, The Animal Show, but there will be a bunch more going on.
Let me explain: Continue reading →
If you follow me on social media you have probably noticed a recent influx of cuddly animal photos. Specifically, photos of those animals who reside at Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary. Perhaps you have been asking yourself what I’m up to, or maybe you have been too overwhelmed with the desire to cuddle said cuddly animals to think about anything else. Either way, I have some news: starting September 1st, I will be the first ever Artist-in-Residence at Tamerlaine Farm!
