Description:Want to help your child acquire a new skill without getting told "You're not my teacher!"? Commission me to write an upbeat song that motivates your child in the spirit of fun! Tell me what skills you want your child to learn and include some fun facts and interests that are unique to your child and let the fun begin. This commission sample was written for a little girl who hated brushing her teeth. After speaking with a couple dentists and a dental hygienist to make sure I included all the important lessons, I created an upbeat tune to help motivate the child to brush. The child now brushes her teeth while singing "her" song!
Artist StatementI have been writing songs since I got my first guitar in middle school. When my first child was born, my songwriting efforts morphed into children's music. Now, I am often creating songs with or for the children and adults I work with. I believe strongly in the power of music to teach, nurture, and inspire!

What I Love Doing
In my spare time I love reading, hiking, enjoying time with family and friends, learning new things and going to places I've never been.
What I Find Beautiful
I've always found relationships to be beautiful. Whether connection comes through conversation, shared activities like music, or the smile of a child, these are the precious things.
My Favorite Memory
My favorite memories are the births of my three children. When my first child was born, the babies were kept in the nursery and brought down to the rooms every few hours. I still remember the sound of the squeaky wheels as the nurses rolled the babies down the hall to their mothers. I remember thinking I hadn't felt this excited since awaiting Santa's arrival as a young child.
My Favorite Art Style
Ever since my days in Paris I have loved french impressionists.
As for music, I grew up listening to James Taylor, Carol King, and Joni Mitchell and still love folk music. The blend of well crafted lyrics and interesting melody lines pulls my attention to a song. I also love soul and motown.
