1. Who am I?
2. What do you do and what project are you currently working on?
I’m a musician, singer-songwriter, and session vocalist. I’ve been performing and writing since childhood. My current project is the band Magnolia Fire. I sing lead vocals and play rhythm guitar for the Los Angeles based rock band. We have been performing and recording our first studio album, set for release January 2015.

I’m from Huntington Beach, CA. Nickname: Surf City USA. There’s no place like home. I’ll go where life takes me. Magnolia Fire will be promoting a new album with a tour next year. We are aiming for the Spring and Summer Festivals.
4. Who is your biggest hero?
Audrey Hepburn. She was a renaissance woman–an actress, a singer, a dancer, and a philanthropist who started her career on Broadway. She was an Academy award winner and a loving mother. She spoke seven languages and trained as a ballerina during her youth in Europe. A WWII refugee, she and her mother found aid from UNICEF and immigrated to New York. She later became an ambassador for the organization, traveling all over the world. She remains a fashion icon and the ultimate brunette bombshell in my book.

I love live music, Broadway performances, and local art shows. They inspire me to create. I dislike negative people who lack compassion and understanding. Everyone is fighting a battle. Be kind to one another.

To write songs that get stuck in your head.
