I Embraced My Passion


I was born in a tent revival. My dad was a preacher who sang and played piano and my mom sang beautifully. So, from the time I was a baby there was music everywhere, I guess it's in my DNA. I've always had a great passion for music, melody and rhyme.

My Life is a Song


On the streets of San Francisco around  Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghirardelli Square is where I first experienced my love for performing live. A good song could bring in enough donations for the evening meal. I followed my dream around the country until I landed in St. Augustine, Florida. I‘ve been writing songs all of my life but it wasn't until I started writing music for film, video documentaries  and theme park rides that I found my niche.  I love collaborating with other artists and experimenting with different genres of music.

Inspiration is Everything


I find inspiration all around me.  I let the music move me as if I were its instrument. I love the places of the heart and soul, and that's what drives me on.
