First and foremost, I love to teach. With more than a decade of experience as a professional vocalist, it is a great honour to share my knowledge with others who have a dream of singing for their whole lives.  I love to work with vocalists of all abilities, from beginner to pro. I also work with actors who need to brush up their voices for a role. Additionally, if you are a songwriter looking for some guidance I am on the songwriting faculty at LA College of Music, and regularly teach songwriting workshops at various colleges, schools and privately, around the world.
