I'm an artist, traveler, drummer, aunt, sister, daughter, friend, songwriter, partner, mom and to some...a very slim margin, a comedian.
I grew up exceptionally poor and we moved around a lot, living with various people. When I was 3 years old, I was involved in an accident that left my 1 year old sister severely burned. I was told that I had killed her. 
Months later, I was able to see my baby sister for the first time and I started a long recovery from what they later called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. After our healing began, my parents were finally able to buy some land and start building a house. When I was 6, we moved out to the country into our tiny little one room "shack" where I learned, with the rest of my siblings, how to live without running water, indoor plumbing or electricity. We were essentially a modern day "Little House on the Prairie" family. 
By the time I turned 13 years old, my mom moved us to "the city". We had running water and electricity. It was here that I would learn my love for music. For the first time, I was able to have a radio and listen anytime I wanted. I was enamored with entertaining and I wanted to do it for the rest of my life. I only share all of this because, I am certain that these pieces of my life have allowed me to write the songs I write...and for that, I am grateful. 
I write for the kids who have nothing, for the underdogs, for the broken-hearted and for the champions. I don't want to just write songs, I want to write songs that make people fall back in love with life again.
