About Me

For now, there really isn’t much to say….I have simply loved music since I was a child. I dreamed of being a star on Broadway, or singing the old standards with a full jazz orchestra…or being the next “diva rockstar”…

The dream was put on the shelf for about 13 years, and, as crazy as it sounds, was revived through the reuniting of my favorite band DURAN DURAN.

I joined their online fan community soon after, and as a result have made some of the most amazing friends…I went to quite a few of the shows on their tour in 2005-2006. The adventures have been many, and memorable…and during this adventure, rediscovered that my purpose, my passion….has always been music. And now, I am willing to give it all I have to give to be a part of it, whether it’s selling it, making it, or helping others make it.

I quit my job of 12 years in the hospitality industry to work for VIRGIN ENTERTAINMENT GROUP, as a sales associate for the VIRGIN MEGASTORE in Orlando, Florida, and was their Sales Supervisor/Dept Manager for their Classical and World Music Depts. until I left to begin my work with JetBlue Airways, where I currently work as a flight attendant, making the friendly skies friendlier!

It’s a far cry from having an office job at a timeshare resort, but I can honestly say…I AM HAPPY…and it’s because I know I am where I need to be right now. Music is still very much a part of me, as I am still singing with my church choir…and I know, there is much more to come, all in Divine Time and Purpose…

Hopefully I will have more to say in the future…
