## Flow State Podcast
Host of the Flow State: a podcast designed to help you focus. This platform is a vessel for me to mix sound, music and ideas to unlock human flow. Each episode combines minimal electronic/instrumental music with the Pomodoro technique to help listeners focus and flow with their craft.

## Music
I also spend a lot of time on music, DJing in San Francisco, Burning Man as part of DeMentha and mostly virtually now. You can find my music on Soundcloud and Spotify.
