Where are you from?
I was born in Fairfax, Virginia. And currently reside in Boston, Massachussets.
Describe your sound:
My sound is a fusion of rock and pop. Catchy choruses driven with a soul full of pain and heartbreak. My jaded voice resonates a melodic symphony amongst the instruments.
Tell us about your new project:
The latest track was "A Broken Girl" inspired by years of addiction. It tells the harrowing story of a girl who succumbs to her demons and loses control and her life to heroin. It's a look inside the life and mind of an addict in the grips of addiction.
Who inspires you?
I draw inspiration from my Father, Mother, and Sister. Through the years they have each taught me more about myself and in turn have formed me into who I am today for better and for worse.
Where do you see your career in 5 years?
I don't have a 5 year goal. I am pursuing my dream and stay right in moment. There's no place like the present.

Tell the people something they need to know:
I have struggled with addiction for many years, after being broken down and beaten up for decades, I am finally rising like a Phoenix from the ashes and feel as if nothing can stop me now.
