About
I am a vocal coach by trade working at Jan Smith Studios in Atlanta GA. I have an original album I released in 2009 but various life events navigated me away from any consistent songwriting. As a coach I help songwriters hone their songs as well as guide them on how to be dynamic performers. I absolutely love this but I miss writing and want to jump back in the pool! I was diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer in 2015, something I am still fighting and has provided me with some time by which to write. Some of my students have told me I've helped to pull out some of their best writing though I still feel like the cobbler who has no shoes ;)
