What I’m doing with my life
I'm a music therapist working in schools for kids with special needs. I'm super thankful to have a job that I love and that am able to have so much fun with. During some the summer I work at camps for kids with life threatening illnesses.

Outside of the music that I make in my music therapy work, I have a multi-media project (which uses video projection and music - and is kind of a mix of hip-hop, folk, and electronic music).
