Growing up in a musical & creative family made becoming a singer/songwriter an organic, even necessary thing for me. Songwriting is a natural outlet when life gets too loud, too harsh, or even when it is too sweet! Words help me cope with life-but add music-and the tears flow more easily, the laughter bubbles up, the emotions that want to sit low and hide are allowed a voice and I can be free to express my stories. That’s what my songs are. My stories. I have traveled with bands, led worship teams, taught piano and voice, recorded albums, been a vocal consultant for recording artists, taught at worship music conferences, played many concerts and festivals, traveled to Italy to present vocal workshops, written 100s of songs, taught workshops on songwriting. I live a very musical life!
