“I create a world of beauty and bounty by sharing my gifts generously.”
That’s the Mission I created for myself at The Mankind Project NWTA in Nov 2008.
Discovering and living my Mission and Being involved in MKP has benefited my life in countless, powerful ways – I will never do life “alone” again.
After staffing the NWTA in 2010 I wrote “The Next Man” and imagined creating an album as a way to share it (and other MKP inspired songs) with my MKP brothers and The World.
This is it!
Where did the songs come from?
In early 2011, I put out an email call for submissions –
Men from around the Northwest sent me lyrics, poems, and recordings.
Laurence Cole, Brian Rohr, Ron Dionne, and I formed a “Village” Board. We met and sifted through the MANY wonderful submissions.
We read poems, listened to a few complete songs, slated words to be transformed into songs by certain musicians, and offered submissions of our own!
Time passed – And the songs became reality one by one.
We hope you enjoy the music! We encourage you to keep an open ear and let the songs you don’t enjoy at first grow on you – like they have all grown on us.

– is a deeply personal issue that everyone decides for himself. Sometimes the price is high, sometimes low. But this is not very important for life. Life is an interesting thing. And the price on Viagra – too.
