"Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world." — Marilyn Monroe

This world that I've wished for from the very beginning revealed itself in songs. When I began to sing, the energy in the room would shift and human joys, sufferings, and comedies became alive in a new way. Artists like Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, and Christina Aguilera seemed to have the virtuosity and vocal scope capture the essence of life. These singers - with huge range, power, and tenderness became my inspiration and also, my friends in times of loneliness and desperation.

Their ability to come through for me every time inspired my twenty-six year devotion to music as the deepest form of expression and relation. As a young girl, songs were magical in choir, pageants, and musical theater. A talent was recognized and my teen years of classical training with Sherry Waters (Seth Riggs) resulted in top ten placement in TMEA's 100,000 person competition for three years in a row. This lead to both private and public performing experiences in 2500 seat venues like the Lila Cockrell Theatre in San Antonio, Tx and touring to places like Pearl Harbor.

Since then, I have integrated my classical theory and technique into forms of singing that are closer to my heart. I've begun to write my own music at the piano and also sing cover songs that feel autobiographical in nature. I'm hoping to collaborate with musicians who look for a singer to bring not only professional expertise, but a personal approach to even familiar songs. My press kit demonstrates some of the reworking of favorites from classic artists like Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Etta James and newer vintage-y ladies like Duffy.

As Marilyn Monroe said, "If I'd observed all the rules I'd never have got anywhere." Creativity has to go beyond our ideas of perfection and flawlessness while still keeping integrity. I hope to connect to other artists, producers, managers, and songwriters who are looking to take chances musically while creating poignant songs that stand the test of time.
