UPDATE 2/21/16: I spent most of this FAWM sick with some kind of plague-flu. Today was the first day I felt well enough to get out of bed and feign being human. So, I'm playing a mean game of catch-up as I try to eek out something to show this month. Bear with me as I hurry through these next 6-7 days.
Singer, songwriter, pianist. Born, raised, and living in Los Angeles.
Music teacher by day, penniless musician by night. Live Theatre Music Director and Orchestra Conductor in between naps.
Pet parent to Wolfie - my biggest fan.
I record everything on Garageband. No fancy gear. Just my live mic, my keyboard, sometimes my ukulele, and anything else I can find lying around in my apartment. I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm just trying to get what I hear in my head outside of my... head.
I love collaborating, so if you want vocals or music to lyrics or lyrics for music, hit me up!
(Update: I've enabled my email address for logged in FAWMers. Let the collabs start!)

It's a film noir and plays like an episode from Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Only 15 minutes long. Take a gander, why dontcha?
Between FAWM 2015 AND FAWM 2016, I wrote this song:
And took my hand at this cover:
