I’ve been playing the piano since I was a toddler, but only began writing music in 2013. Growing up in the Seattle area, my mother was a busy piano teacher, so I was always surrounded by and immersed in piano music – every life event had a piano soundtrack.
As a teenager, I had the opportunity to live and study piano in Vienna, which was as eye-opening and horizon-broadening as you can imagine. I majored in music at University, and afterwards pursued a life busy with piano teaching and performing.
Fast forward a bit: in September of 2013 I met the love of my life, which it turns out isn’t just a cheesy tagline. I was inspired by the overwhelming flow of intense emotion to write my first-ever composition, Loving in the Rain. Nothing much happened on the writing-music front until 2015, when my husband and I quit our jobs and sold everything we owned to travel the world for a year. Inspiration for the rest of my debut album, Wandering Soul, came with the fantastic places, sights, and people we saw that year.I am currently living in Auckland, New Zealand with my husband. I released Wandering Soul on May 15, and am already working on my second album.
