Singer, Songwriter, Musician, BSW, ERYT
My entire life I have been an artist, writer, and musician. I love to create and I am passionate about all things sound. I began my journey as a songwriter and musician at the age of 12. I discovered a love for bass, followed by a passion for playing guitar and singing. I released my first EP Luna in 2012, which featured a collection of acoustic songs written from the ages of 14 to 17.
Since 2010 I began performing live both solo and in bands throughout Ontario and across Canada in theatres, bars, cafes, and private events. Writing and recording in the studio has always been a sacred place for me to express myself musically.
2014 marked the year of my second EP titled Steady Sun. Steady Sun was released on July 5, 2014, and features a collection of songs experimenting in the folk, blues, and rock genres. The first single off the EP titled A Song About Spring received regular rotation and airplay across both college and commercial Canadian radio stations, including CBC Radio 3.
In late March 2018, I was back in the studio, working with producer and sound engineer Justin Meli at Chalet Recording Studio to record my third EP THR33. On September 28, 2018, I released the first single When I Was Young which followed the official release of THR33 on March 29, 2019.

Second to music is my love and passion for all things healing, and this is where I live dedicatedly to yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. My spiritual journey began at the age of 16 when I attended my first yoga class.
I fell in love with the practice and it became the greatest tool in my life. Music and my spiritual practices are inseparable, and I am never as deeply in the moment as I am when I am creating.
Since 2018 I began to combine both my love for music and meditation together and began offering live music as a sound journey in yoga and meditation studios, events, private and corporate sessions.
In 2018 I also began my audio production and engineering journey through recording and producing guided meditation tracks and ambient music for both myself and my fellow yoga and meditation instructors, as well as audio recordings for commercial businesses and online meditation streaming apps.
I offer a unique approach to stillness, movement, and sound, offered across studios, events, and private sessions across Ontario.
