First and foremost I am a lover of all things music. It is my passion, it is what fuels me, and throughout my life it has been the ultimate healer. It is a universal language that connects people. No matter what part of the world people live in, and when people don’t even speak the same language or have the same culture, it can still connect us. Through war, strife, and oppression, music can heal. Through personal trials and tribulations, music can heal. Through worry, self-doubt, and fear, music can heal. The creative process of playing and making music can give somebody confidence, a sense of purpose, and a musical community of belonging. Music allows the mind to think outside the box and it imparts knowledge on the listener. Through musical connection, it is a catalyst to change the world.
I was trained in classical piano starting at age 6 and quickly knew that playing music was something I would do for the rest of my life. In addition to piano, I quickly picked up the alto saxophone, guitar, singing, and rapping. I love the sounds of genre-mashing such as hip-hop and classical, hip-hop and rock, and reggae rock. I have written songs for two full-length albums and am currently writing for my third album. Please contact me for bookings and collaborations!
