I was born and raised in Los Angeles, West Hollywood to be exact.
I'm still here so I must like it.
I graduated from UCSB with a B.A. in film
studies. I spent some time in and out of the film business
but really didn't connect with it. Since then I've
worked in my dad's law practice, was an assistant in
entertainment and now work part time in merchandising.
I'm not ready for the full 9-5 job cuz I need time for
writing, music, photography and painting.
Writing has been an outlet for me since I was
fourteen. I started keeping a journal and wrote
predominantly about the dramas, insecurities, and
unfairness's that go along with being a teen. As time
moved ahead I experienced relationships through
college that emotionally launched me into writing
poetry. Having kept my inner most feelings to
myself, I needed an outlet. And there it began, poem
after poem, never exposed to anyone. It became my own
self-therapy. I could escape without judgment.
A few years went by and I was ready to show all, I
didn't want to be silent any longer. And then came the music.
Having no musical experience, aside from some piano
lessons when I was eight, I began voice and guitar
lessons. Writing music has been an amazing experience.
I'm currently in the band NonProphet.
In addition to music I started painting over the last few years.
To everyone I recommend picking up a brush and some paint and
giving it a try. Make it messy if you have to. That's all i
I have found myself, my art, and have gained
understanding beyond comprehension.
