Over the years I have filled up so many notebooks and journals, and more loose scrap paper than I can count. I first wrote about raindrops and rainbows, and eventually crushes and boys and love, and then about the world. I would have recording sessions with my best friend and my Fostex machine before I was cool enough to get a fancy laptop with a DAW program or get into a studio to record.
In 2011 I won Long Island's Got Talent with my original songs and was accepted to Berklee College of Music for songwriting in 2012. I ended up choosing to study music education elsewhere, but I continued to write, and released my first EP - Sweeter Part of Me in 2014. I also attended the NYU summer song writing workshop in 2021 and have collaborated with multiple people over the years as a co-writer, top liner, or vocal arranger.
While I write both lyrics and music, I find that my strength lies in lyric writing. The process is never the same for each song, and I enjoy how unique it is depending on who I'm working with and the songs we are writing.
