Influences: Amanda Palmer, Regina Specktor, Tim MInchin, Rachel Bloom Disney movies and musical theatre.
I'm a singer/songwriter, composer, improv music director, and teacher based in Chicago. I describe my aesthetic as folk rock musical theatre. My songs vary from comedic observational style humor to deep vulnerable ballads about growth and life and such.
In October 2020 I released my debut album Power of the Unnamed Passion which consists largely of songs I've written over the past 3 years of FAWM. It's a musical theatre folk rock journey of those moments in life where everything falls apart and you learn to make new meaning.
It's on my bandcamp as well as all the streaming platforms.
This is my fourth year doing FAWM and I'm so excited to see what comes out!

Hi!! Glad you are back - looking forward to new songs from you! 😊
Artist's Way has changed my life already and I'm only on week 4! I made a sign that says, "Great Creator, I'll take care of the quantity. You take care of the quality". This is my mantra for FAWM
