Stay at home (almost) 40 year old mom kicking butt and taking
A three and six year old are awesome and simultaneously exhausting. But you know what’s more exhausting? Hearing yourself talk about your dreams and not doing anything about it.
In 2016 I had “now or never” kind of reality check that launched me back into music. I was at the right place at the right time and got into a songwriting class that specializes in writing for film, TV and commercials. That’s what I’ve always wanted to do but never had a road map or the push.
I specialize in hook and melody writing, plus vocals and rhythm acoustic guitar in my home studio space. (It’s an isolation booth in the corner of my basement that would make MacGyver proud.)
In 1995 I set aside my trombone for a $65 dollar, painfully high action, flea market acoustic guitar and never looked back. I figured that if you play guitar, you ought to sing, and if you sing you were supposed to write songs. It all seemed to work and I absolutely loved it. I wrote more songs that I probably should have during Accounting and Business Statistics.
But the business degree paid off and I was able to start and sell two companies in the past 10 years. I always managed to weave songwriting into everything (including a rap for a crowdfunding campaign that got national media attention, initiated the sale of that company and paid for my son’s adoption from China. It’s a crazy story.)
Now I’m collaborating with writers and producers all of the U.S., U.K. and Australia and growing my catalog of synch-friendly music, as well as producing in-house. I am always interested in working with other like-minded writers and producers focused on synch licensing.
All of my music is one-stop and ready to clear.
