The Why Podcast

I’ve started a podcast called “The Why” where athletes, musicians, and other creatives share stories of discovering their passions and “the why” behind what they do, as well as how those experiences have shaped their lives outside of their craft.

You can listen on Apple or Spotify!

Music To Feed

Kristie Ahn and I created our “Music To Feed” initiative earlier this month in an effort to raise money to help those in need during this time of crisis. All proceeds go directly to World Central Kitchen for COVID-19 Relief.

We will be recording a series of virtual “concerts” and would love if anyone who is financially able would help contribute to a cause that is important to us. Our GoFundMe (linked below) has more information about how to request a song and make a donation.

We wanted to pick an organization that would impact as many people as possible. WCK supports small businesses while also feeding those most in need: food-insecure families / seniors / healthcare workers. 

Donations can be made anonymously if preferred, and any amount will help make an impact! Thank you in advance for your contribution. More information about WCK below:

World Central Kitchen (WCK) is a non-profit organization addressing food insecurity during and after natural disasters and humanitarian crises, while also operating long-term programs aimed at improving livelihoods by strengthening local food ecosystems. 

They are currently working across America to safely distribute individually packaged, fresh meals in communities that need support – for children and families to pick up and take home, as well as delivery to seniors who cannot venture outside. WCK is now active in dozens of cities providing nearly 200,000 fresh meals every day.
