I am a singer-songwriter currently based in Nashville, TN. I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD where I first started writing songs and performing. I studied voice at the prestigious Berklee College of Music where I sang in various genres including pop, country, folk, R&B, jazz, and classical. I graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in Professional Music with a focus in Performance and Contemporary Writing / Production.
I have been performing professionally for over 5 years at different venues throughout Maryland, Boston, and Nashville including coffeeshops, large music venues, and arenas. As a songwriter, I have been writing for over 10 years and recorded and released my album “Words” in 2014.
I know how important it is to find the right vocal teacher! Each lesson with me will be tailor-made to your individual needs and goals. I want to help you achieve your dreams and discover who you are as an artist, vocalist, and musician.
