I started singing and dancing at an early age and continued to foster those passions in musical theater. When I was 12, I found a creative outlet in songwriting. I wrote, recorded, and released my first song titled “Take It Slow” in 2013. Following the release, I began writing more often and released my first EP, “Seventeen” in 2016, as well as a music video for my song “Trouble.” Throughout high school, I participated in school talent shows, coffeehouses, a cappella groups, and songwriting camps. I had the honor of performing the National Anthem at two Celtics games, as well as numerous high school and college sports games. I studied guitar for three years and is self-taught on the piano.

I started in Real Estate about six years ago. Came from owning my own business and going bankrupt in 2009. What I learned from my last business I brought with me to Real Estate. Even before my previous business, I have always been artistic, creative, and vibrant, you could say. So I brought that with me everywhere and to everything I did. When I was 15, I did murals with some of Miami’s best artists and was featured in magazines like 12OZ Prophet and Miami Grafitti. When I started my previous business, I learned how to use photoshop to create my own ads and editing my own photos. Then the late ’90s came and YouTube was getting a lot of attention so I learned how to film and edit videos to promote my company. I was the biggest company in FL in my field and was selling my product in 18 countries. Read more>>

Since I was a little girl, singing has been my passion. I would run around my house singing ABBA and Hilary Duff songs, and my younger sister and I would put on shows in the basement for our parents. We’d choreograph full dance routines to Disney movie soundtracks and our favorite artists, like Hannah Montana and Vanessa Hudgens. The first song I remember singing in my living room was “Dancing Queen” by ABBA. I didn’t start taking voice lessons until I was about 14 years old, but my dad played the piano at home. I begged him to let me take lessons when I was five, and I started piano lessons that year. When I was about ten years old, I started writing songs. Read more>>
