About

While finishing up my undergrad and getting ready to move across the country to fling myself fully into the pursuit of a career in theatre,  I found myself craving a creative outlet I could have more sound control over. Songwriting soon became my emotional refuge as I discovered how grounding it could be to funnel my experiences, and the often overwhelming emotions that accompany them, into poetry and music.  

Over the past few months I discovered the thrill, as well as the deep liberation and healing that comes from sharing music with others when I found the courage to perform my original songs, both in person at open mics around the city, and online through a YouTube channel. (check out some of the links below!)

I can think of many times in my life when a musical phrase or metaphor has cut straight to my heart and helped me feel a little less alone in the world. Some artists that are especially inspiring to me include Sara Bareilles, Joni Mitchell, and dodie. The idea that something I write could have that effect on someone else fuels me to keep writing, sharing and growing this platform and community. My current goal is to build a strong following of listeners and eventually record my first studio album. 

If you're interested in supporting this pursuit, I hope you'll consider subscribing to my YouTube channel to support the content I create there, and/or signing up for my mailing list for exclusive releases and to stay up to date on everything I'm doing. 

Thanks so much for your interest!!
