I’m a Nashville-based independent artist and songwriter. My style has been described as gentle, yet thoughtful, inviting listeners to think and ask meaningful questions about the world around them.


I grew up in a small town in Kentucky called Dawson Springs, and learned to play the piano by watching my dad play. I then attended Belmont University in Nashville, TN, and graduated with a degree in vocal composition in 1996. I continue to record and perform my own music while balancing that with a career as a teacher. My influences include Elton John, Billy Joel, and Sting.

Thank you for listening.  I truly appreciate it.


I've been working on original music that means a lot to me, and that I'm hoping you'll let me share with you.

My new album, 'Here I Am,' is now available as a physical cd and for digital download!

 As I tried to process the recent shooting in Connecticut, I wrote a song.  Hear it or watch it.  Hear clips from my new instrumental piano album 'Leaving the Chrysalis' by clicking the big play button on the right.
