Where

Performing songs from the Great American Songbook is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do – even prior to acting (you may have seen me in HBO’s “Westworld” or “Curb Your Enthusiasm”). After my mother passed, suddenly, unexpectedly, and tragically nearly 5 years ago, returning to singing is the only thing that saved my life. Bringing my heart and my passion to you for the enrichment and entertainment of you and your guests is my greatest joy in life. That, and my daughter. From street performing in Palm Springs, Pasadena, Burbank, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Tampa, and Sarasota and other places, to performing for Hotels, Shopping malls, Tiki bars, Restaurants, Social Clubs, Employee associations, Assisted living/retirement facilities, Brides/Grooms, Families holding birthday/anniversary/engagement parties, etc., two things are common occurrences: I am always asked for a business card. When you do the “thing” that you’ve been most scared to do your entire life and you begin to live your truth, you will find that the fear falls away and that people will respond with love and kindness, as undoubtedly, they have their own fears that they wish to overcome and when you face yours, you set them free. I’m a freedom fighter with my vocal chords.

I spent 3 years studying and performing in the World Music Program at Florida State University - including the Gospel Choir, West African Dance and Drum, Brazilian Samba, and Afro-Peruvian ensembles. I sang and performed in several musical theatre productions prior to moving to Los Angeles.

Performing songs from the Great American Songbook is the only thing I've ever wanted to do.
