About

I wear many hats in my career – singer, collaborator, coach, educator, composer, sound designer and lyricist. This has honed my ability to engage a wide range of skills to multi-disciplinary projects and identify the creative opportunities available.

Whether designing community projects, creating new music or tutoring young artists, I focus on facilitating the full creative individuality of each participant, as well as continually challenging my own artistic development.

I am interested in exploring alternative perspectives, discovering channels of expression, risking that I might be wrong, chancing that I may find something that simply feels right.
