My formal educational accomplishments are in linguistics. I love languages and world cultures, and I love music. You’ll see my YouTube is littered with cover songs in Spanish, French, Arabic, Serbocroatian…and English.
I’ve been performing for close to 20 years on my own, in groups and in stage musicals. I released an all original R&B album in 2009 before moving to Egypt for a year. I came back to the states anxious to mix some international sounds in my original works, and I’m continually inspired to expand my repertoire.
I hope you enjoy my music! 😉
