Come sit with me on this bench for a sec. 

Music & the Arts have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was born in New York City and grew up performing theatre, making up stories, and coming up with my own renditions of Old Macdonald. 

Eventually my family moved to Fort Worth, TX where I continued doing theatre but found a new love - playing the guitar and jotting down lyrics in the margins of my school notebooks. Songwriting started out as something that was hyper sensitive and personal to me, which I believe is how it is for everyone at first, but when my oldest friend was diagnosed with cancer when we were 16, I discovered that music is meant to be shared, from the inside out. After performing a song I had written for her for my entire high school, I was given the courage to continuously share my music.

In 2012 I came to Belmont to study Songwriting and now call Nashville home. The talent, energy, and collaborative nature of this city has pushed me and grown me in ways I never could have imagined. 

While my natural style leans singer/songwriter, indie-pop, I strive to create music that encompasses a lot of different genres and formats. I've always connected most with music that is dynamic and entertaining, while also being challenging and uplifting, and this is a balance I always attempt to strike in my music.

You can find all of it on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, NoiseTrade, SoundCloud, iCloud, Google Drive, Google Earth, Google Fiber, MoviePass, BitCoin and at Soul Cycle.
