ABOUT

ME

I've made a career of music my entire life.

 

I got started at age 5, learning the piano alongside my grandmother back in Iowa. It was a simple start that quickly branched out to vocal and instrumental performance nationwide as a child and teenager. I had the great fortune of performing for audiences across the country early in life. As an adult, I accepted the invitation to attend New York University in their Vocal Performance Program. From my days in New York to my life now in Los Angeles and beyond, I've studied with some of the best - and most demanding - teachers, directors and coaches in the game. I've worked with some of the most promising names on Broadway, some of the best-loved stars and hottest new talents in Hollywood, and I've developed singers at all levels of experience. 

 

And along the way I've learned a lot, but maybe the number one thing I've learned - and my favorite - is this: your voice is your power. No two voices are alike, and they shouldn't be! When I coach, my goal is to bring sustainable, personal best-level singing to beginner and professional voices alike, while maintaining all the qualities that give your voice its originality. It's your voice, it's your career, it's your journey. I can help you get to as high as you want to go.

 

So let's get to work, let's reach your peak performance.
