you’re alive, breathing, and blessed with the power of free will.
Start putting the pieces together to build your dream,
then act on it.
You can do it…I believe in you.
has been a MUCH needed recharge for my body, mind, and spirit.
Being M.I.A. in social media helped out big time, too…almost like a cleansing.
All the face-to-face conversations, hugs, and laughter shared with family during my vacation holds bar none to comments/likes/etc/etc/etc
December also brings forth a huge energy surge; I’m ready and motivated as ever.
Writing and performing hip-hop has enriched my life in ways that translate away from music.
I refuse to put myself in a box, musically.
I aim to be a constellation, not just a shooting star.
Don’t you just love it when creative, melodic, musical ideas just come to you? Wave after wave after wave?
The best part is when you’re not even trying; you’re not forcing the process and you’re not banging your head against a wall, your journal, your instrument.
Creativity is one of the most beautiful processes of humanity.
I’m so thankful to experience it everyday.

Get ‘em, girl! Keep going.
A crowd that you perform for can tell a LOT about you…it doesn’t matter if you’re playing for 5 friends or 500 people or 5,000 people. There are, and will be, SO many things that your audience don’t, won’t, and never see:
- The hours and hours YOU put into your craft (along with the hours and hours of OTHER shit you have to do/put up with),
- the long days of rehearsing, networking, and practicing,
- the longer nights of practicing, even if you’re dying to go out or have a “normal” night friends/family,
- the sleepless nights of wondering if you’re on the right path,
- the tears that come with auditions (happy and sad),
- the numerous talks with Mom/Dad: “Trust me, I’m going to be successful with what I do!”,
- that genuine moment backstage/in the green room of clarity and focus,
- that genuine smile on your face when you get to wake up, everyday, doing what YOU love to do: playing/creating music.
- etc., etc., etc.
What my audience DOES see on stage is just as important as the things they don’t.
Never stop striving. Keep moving, moving, moving.
