Thank you for visiting.

I write, sing, and I love music, I curate many music playlists. Always listening. I began singing and dancing at 4, at DeLena Day School in beautiful Hyde Park, Ill. ... I've been dancing and singing ever since. I write original melodies, create vocal arrangements and layered harmonies. I became an ASCAP member in 1980 while a songwriter at Tabu Records, under the tutelage and watchful eye of Clarence Avant. At Tabu, I was exposed to the "business" of songwriting, music publishing, and blessed with priceless exposure to naturally gifted artists and producers including Michael, Prince and Marvin, among others.

While you're here, please link over to Rhythm Channel One, and my deck on Soundcloud.
