My passion is telling stories through music. I grew up a few miles from the white sandy beaches of southern California, so in-between boogie board surfing, I marched in a band with my clarinet, performed in school musicals, sang in the choir, was a backup singer for a cover band, and even a DJ at a dance club and radio station.
Unfortunately, when it came time to pay back those college loans, and deliver a rent check, I found myself leaving the true love of my life: music, to pursuing a career in the corporate world. After years of long hours (and I mean long), weekends, holidays, late nights; I found few rewards, and saw a lot of glass ceilings.
After watching a family member battle cancer and frustrated with what I had compromised, I took a deep look at what drives me, what fulfills my soul and made a giant leap of faith, betting on myself. Scary? For sure! But, today, I have written 4 albums, (Contradictions, Turning Point, The Blond Side, Spin Me Ever After), completed a 21 State tour, found an outstanding band on both coasts, created a publishing company, and am the only indie artist who has charted 5 songs on a single album!
I had a dream come true in 2011 when I sang the National Anthem for the Washington Redskins game on the 50 yard line, and now, in 2012, my two of my music videos took off into cyber space giving me over 2 million views. Crazy, right?
I began this adventure to create music that will make you cry, smile, dance in the kitchen and think about life a little differently.
For me, my music is an image of me and those who have touched me; musical stories that others can find themselves in.
There are so many great stories left to write, left to be told.
