Additional Skills

I have a lot of experience writing music. I'm constantly developing characters and stories. With my foundation in writing I find it easier to connect with the character I'm trying to bring to life on stage, on screen or in a vocal booth. I have a lot of experience recording and acting. I know what it takes to deliver a solid performance. Sometimes it's the 30th take and sometimes it's the first take. That's the beauty of the craft, you never know, till you know.
