read about my work as a singer and DEI professional
Welcome! For more official music-related bios, please click HERE.
I am a generalist. What does that mean? Rather than someone who has delved into only one area of expertise, I have prioritized developing a set of skills and way of thinking that allows me to move from one topic to another with ease and to make meaningful connections between them.
In one half of my professional life, I am involved in the intersection between the learning and development space and DEIB, currently working as a consultant and facilitator for an organizational consulting firm. My interests include disability rights, supporting employee growth through targeted feedback, and designing learning programs that support both an organization’s ability to thrive in uncertain times and the goal of creating a more inclusive workforce. In the other half, I am an artist: I create as a singer, writer, concert producer, and community builder. I believe that creating and consuming art can and should support and enrich our lives, and am passionate about the importance of prioritizing mental and physical wellness over the demands of career achievement (as well as being the first to acknowledge that can be damn hard).
I am the founder of DC Singer Collective, a group dedicated to promoting artist-led programming and making music in a supportive environment.
I also have a love of cheesy jokes, exploring new and old cities, and hanging out with my cat, who is the best one in the world (fight me on that!).

Some of my superpowers:
Having and facilitating difficult conversations
Leaning into opportunities for learning & change
Making people laugh
Endless curiosity and an understanding that there is always another perspective to the story: I have my early obsession with history to thank for that!
A deep-seated belief in the importance of respecting all humans equally: I look for ways to prioritize well-being over exploitative practices
