About

Hello! I started professional voice acting at age 4. I was recently featured as a backup vocalist (& cellist) for artist Dessa on Sirius XM Radio and my voice is behind local TV theme songs, bank commercials, children's music albums & other projects. I also have a professional musical theatre experience.

I am also a professional touring/session cellist, writer and arranger. You'll find me on everything from Tyga/Chris Brown to PBS Documentary soundtracks. See work exp below for tour details.
