Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
I am a singer, songwriter, and producer in Nashville.
I want more people to be introduced to my music!
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
My whole mission with my artistry is to create music that can help or heal people.
I like to create relatable music that connects with people and can help them with whatever they are going through in life.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
Most artists and creatives always have doubts in their minds if their dream is worth the journey, and if it’s really what they’re destined to do, including myself.
A few years ago, I was performing at a showcase a publisher was hosting. I knew I wanted to be a professional songwriter but was unsure if I had what it took to be an artist.
After my performance, the publisher told me I was making a big mistake if I didn’t pursue a career as an artist. I took that to heart and that’s when I knew music was truly what I was meant to do.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
My biggest challenge was when I was starting out in Nashville, and I was scared to death to perform on stage among many talented performers in town.
I had so much anxiety performing those first few shows in town and almost backed out a few times. It took playing multiple shows to get comfortable on stage, and now I absolutely love being on stage.
It was extremely hard gaining the courage to play live shows, but I just kept reminding myself that I can only get better. And I’m so glad I stuck through it. Every new person in Nashville goes through this.
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?

I chose Brandy because she has always been a songwriting inspiration of mine and I would love to work with her and create songs for other people with her.
Leslie Fram is a well-known female executive in the music industry that always pushes artists she believes in, and helps females in country music.
