The Writer in Me
I have always loved to write and have been re-inspired to write since I began taking Monica Pasqual's songwriting class this Fall. (www.monicapasqual.com). Monica is an outstanding writer/musician, and I have always wanted to work with her. She's also a wonderful teacher!
I used to write a blog on my website that I created back in 2003, which focused more on me as a singer/performer. This current website, of which I am really excited about, will be focused on me as a voice teacher, producer and mentor, as well as, causes I lend my voice to. I look forward to expanding my services to align with my passions and years of experience in the music business. There are so many ways in which we can be of service by using our gifts.
I still love to perform, and I will continue to when I am moved to do so. Some of you know that my focus has been on other things the past few years. Raising Coco now twelve, has been the greatest and most wonderful gift in my life. Being a Mother continually inspires me to grow as a person and be of service to others. I have also been healing from two bouts of Breast Cancer in the past four years. Cancer, or any serious illness, brings life into sharp focus. I am constantly reassessing my approach to healing, and staying present with what matters most to me.
I was hugely inspired by Monica Pasqual's memoir "Tom and Monica." After devouring that, I read "Love Warrior" by Glennon Doyle Melton, which got me thinking that maybe I should tell the story of my life. Whether through song or memoir, it's all the same to me. The telling of our stories helps us to heal, relate to others, and to grow. Thanks for being here, let's be in touch.
