"Although I grew up in Southern California, New England's inspiring Pioneer Valley is where I currently live and perform. Even though I was trained classically, my heart is with jazz and pop music. I have performed in operas, fronted a jazz band, and have been known to sing in a rock band, on occasion. I believe a good singer can sing anything....well as long as you're not screaming. You can often find me sitting at my piano singing and songwriting. I love collaborating with other artists. My current collaboration is with Lindel Hart and John Waynelovich wth Savage. It is a true story about my Great Grandma, Wanda Savage. Growing up with the stories of Wanda always fascinated me. Her reputation was sordid, but I always thought there was another side to her story. I thought a musical would give her a voice."
