My Story

I am very interested in building artistic community and have met some of the coolest people during my last few years collaborating in NYC. Background: My initial training is in Musical Theatre performance. I put out a full length record and toured the country as a singer-songwriter for 5 years- then finally landed back home. Since then, I’ve purposed myself to write new musical theatre music. And often perform that music. And other people’s music.

Gender Identity

Some people identify completely with the gender they were assigned at birth (usually male or female), while others may identify with only a part of that gender, or not at all. Some people identify with another gender entirely. Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not visible to others.
