Award-winning Singer Songwriter
"I love when great melodies intertwine with stories that hook me in, leaving me wanting to listen over
...songs that speak to me, make me laugh and cry, remind me of something dear, carry a powerful message
...inspire me...songs that make me FEEL something - that are real and fearlessly from the heart.
That's the song I strive to create...every time..."
