I love singing in a wide variety of genres.  A smooth soulful jazz crooner at heart.  For the last 9 years I’ve been singing a lot of classical masterpieces with the LA Master Chorale and LA Philharmonic at the Disney Concert Hall and Hollywood Bowl.   Sung under the baton of the several brilliant maestros: Grant Gershon, Gustavo Dudamel, Zubin Metah, Esa Pekka Salonen, Charles Dutoit, Michael Tilson Thomas.

Had the honor of singing on some wonderful blockbuster films: MinionsGodzilla (2014)The Hangover 3, Avatar, Despicable Me 2,The Rite, Race To Witch Mountain, XMen Wolverine, Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Earth..

I am so blessed to be able to make my living doing what I love.

Live your dream.
