Fun Facts:  I’ve always had a passion for singing and music, but it wasn’t until I was 34 years old that I was moved to do it myself. So I  joined a band.  I was fortunate to get hooked up with some great musicians and mentors. We went on to write and self-release 2 albums, and played a multitude of shows in the Bay area.
