Bio

Hi! I started out in my teens as a singer-songwriter in Chicago, then worked my way through Columbia College Chicago for my BA (vocal performance/business).

During college I landed a few wild and crazy internships that taught me my craft from the inside out. I explored the Chicago music scene in its entirety while putting together a launch party for the Chicago Public Library’s CONTACT! music database. While working for CCC’s Dean of Music, composer William (Bill) Russo (a sensitive musician whose influences spanned from Getz and Kenton to Greek Tragedy and a symphony for Leonard Bernstein), I learned a little about writing music, evaluating gourmet food and mixing killer vodka martinis, and a lot about a real Life in the Arts.

And then, after taking a recording class, I landed a job as the office 2nd banana and assistant engineer at Acme Recording Studio for the late, amazing, multi-talented musician, whistler, producer and engineer Mike Rasfeld.

I worked in the trenches at Acme, helping to manufacture voice-over cassettes for commercial artists and demo reels for singer songwriters looking for that hit. During a frost-bitten, extreme Chicago winter, California beckoned, and I was seduced by the business side of the industry.

In LA, I’ve helped individual performers tackle daily administrative minutia, coordinated record production schedules, multi-tasked for a small progressive rock record label, infiltrated the Musicians’ Union, sidestepped my way into promotion for individual artists, and currently work at a Westside indi label, organizing daily office administration and scouring the street for Film/TV music placements.

Privately, I paint, write songs, and stories and run creativity workshops. The “Choose Your Muse” series, is designed to help participants loosen up and have fun playing with art, music and writing. I use the ancient Greek Muses of Inspiration as a framework to create a safe and encouraging environment. I have recently been published in the anthology, “Inspiring Creativity: An Anthology of Powerful Insights and Practical Ideas to Guide You To Successful Creating” (CCA Press, LA, 2005).
