A born and raised Austinite, my love of music goes deeper than the Colorado River. An appreciation and thirst for music runs in my family, singing as a family happened often and with much enthusiasm! My mom played the piano and guitar while dad educated and shaped my musical preferences with his impressive collection of record albums.
A songwriter since high school, I truly found my voice standing beside the waters of Flathead Lake in Montana, where I worked for 5 consecutive summers as a camp counselor and a member of the leadership staff at Flathead Lutheran Camp. My guitar was a constant companion through these summers, and the creative genius of fellow musicians I met there inspired me. Back home in Austin since 2005, I am thrilled to have returned to my roots, the city of my birth now bearing witness to the emergence of new songs and a new life. I believe we all have music inside of us, and I urge you to let it out!
