Flutist, singer, songwriter, author, nature and animal lover: I write, arrange, and record my songs, and lead the singing at a local church. My music is a blend of classical, folk, ethnic, and improv using silver flute, Native American flutes, penny whistle, ocarinas, ukuleles, synthesizer, vocals, and whistling. For me, music is about heart, inspiration, joy, and deep expression. I love nothing more than touching people through music.

I’m quirky, over-educated, compassion-driven, sensitive, and enjoy a good dose of dry humor. I follow alternative health practices and eat natural food.  As hard as I try not to be, I’m obsessive and easily hijacked by details that probably don’t matter.  My happiness comes from walking, writing songs, rescuing an animal or bug, watching the sky, improvising on my flute with other musicians, hearing my cats purr, connecting with people on a deeper than surface level, or making something to give someone. I’m a Christian and love the Lord passionately, but I won’t be in your face about it.

I moved to the mountains of Western N.C. in 2013 and have never looked back.  Since moving here, I’ve worked at the Great Smoky Mt. Nat’l Park and a local health food store, and now I work from home where I’m focused on fiction writing and song writing. See my first novel, as described by its narrator and “author” Tykie, HERE.

I enjoy living simply, with my three cats. I aim to follow the ancient paths, described in Jeremiah 6:16. “Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.”
