At the age of 7, I realized that I love everything about the performing arts. I started with performance lessons which included singing, acting and getting me comfortable being on stage. People always ask me if I am nervous to be on stage. I really am not because I have been performing since I was young. I enjoy taking on roles that challenge me. While I have an upbeat and positive personality, I embrace roles that are a departure from my natural qualities.
While maintaining a 4.0 GPA and keeping up with my voice, dance and acting lessons, I love to hang with my friends, water ski, sail, swim, tube, rock climb, roller blade, scooter, and record original compositions. I often find myself in my recording studio where I create songs, jingles and musical shorts using Garage Band or Logic Pro with my Yamaha keyboard. I find it so challenging and rewarding to perform all vocals and create my musical accompaniment for my recordings.

One of my passions is charitable projects. In 2018, my first charity album raised more than $13,000 and was donated to local charities. I proudly released my second charity album, “Gratitude” with the same intentions. I recorded both albums with the specific intent that 100% of the money raised went directly to my three chosen charities. I was able to raise and donate over $25,000 through these two projects by singing at events, restaurants, personal gatherings and even knocking on doors. I plan to continue to use music as my tool to raise money for the charitable causes that are near and dear to my heart.
