Middle Ground

Middle Ground

Being raised in Texas and spirited up to Washington, DC as a teenager, Iā€™d lost some of my southern identity, and moving to middle Tennessee in 1999 I quickly found it again. During the ten years I lived in the American South I joined forces with another brilliant songwriter who taught me even more about friendship and art. Together we released three full length albums and toured as a six piece band for 5 years playing his music at full volume.
Over 15 years, many summer weeks were dedicated to volunteering to teach music and art creation to young women ages 8-18yrs at the Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp in Murfreesboro and other affiliated organizations located in Nashville, Memphis, DC, and New York City. 
I formed deep connections to hundreds of open hearted people, who appreciated my frank, honest, and loving approach to communication. I have spent years guiding individuals after intense histories of child sexual assault, struggles to come out to their families as queer,  drug and alcohol abuse,  interpersonal & business challenges, mental wellness and depression/anxiety, breakups and divorce, family issues surrounding generational disfunction and poverty, as well as career and general life guidance.
