journey

 
 
The boat above is named the Rigil Kent. I was 6 years old when we went to live in Sydney, Australia and explore the Great Barrier Reef. This was the beginning of what would be a life long adventure. These travels have inspired my songwriting because I continue to be open to new ideas and inspirations. Music transcended the constant movement of my travels; music is home.


My goal is to place original music in television and film.  In 2011, my instrumental song Due North was selected and featured in a short film for the national 48 Hour Film Project (opening/closing credits).  I have also had local San Diego film makers use my music for other indie projects. 


In 2011, two of my songs were selected for the San Diego Songwriter’s Guild contest. 


I have performed my original music for radio, television, and public venues throughout California. Radio appearances have included the “Home Grown Hour” with host Cathryn Beeks on KPRI 102.1 in San Diego, “Localize It” on KJEE 92.9 in Santa Barbara, and KSCU 103.3 in Santa Clara. My music has also been featured on television, including "Rock Spots" in Santa Barbara and "Java Jams" in San Diego. I graduated with a music minor from the University of San Diego and am classically trained on piano. Guitar was something I discovered on my own.
