If happiness is the key to success, knowing the notes will help you write the song of your life.

Since 2003, I have been a working musician and music instructor and have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of area artists from beginner to long-practicing. As a musician, I have performed with electronic pop band the Bureau, The Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra, and the Americana group Yankee Racers and led the chamber pop trio Wax Wine. This year I released my first solo EP, “Giving Gifts,” co-produced by Louis Wall of the Texas Room. The Riverfront Times review of “Giving Gifts” noted my work as an “expressive, acrobatic vocalist” and said “this collection finds her in her purest state: facing love’s slings and arrows with breathy intensity and dramatic instrumentation.”
