Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


I like to make people FEEL things... I transmute pain and joy into fine lil' ditties. Always winging it.

After a stint at Berklee College of Music I returned home, to Naples, FL, and began to drink and work off the loan debt as a real estate assistant. I soon entered the SWFL music scene, with additional appearances in Saint Augustine, FL, where my sister attended Flagler College. I established a career over a span of 6 years- both as a solo artist and a member of multiple projects. I toured throughout Florida with a couple progressive bluegrass and americana groups, and wrote, recorded, and performed with the alternative band Modern Mystic. 

Ever depressed and desperately in need of a career re-vamp, I spent summer 2016 out west, between Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. I dropped everything like a hot potato soon after; my father suffered a massive stroke on NYE 2016. I became his full-time caregiver for about a year, relocating to Saint Augustine to seek the aid of my sister. It continues to be a rough situation, but we've managed to make it through. 

My dad is in a skilled nursing facility now. Taking care of him took a toll. But I am healing, and I have a bit more freedom now to create and perform, and do my best to create a better life for us both. Thank you for listening and letting me share.

Enjoy the stories and sounds.
