Sweethearts of Swing

Last week I subbed for an Andrew's Sisters gig on the U.S.S. Midway - a retired aircraft carrier that is now docked in San Diego. Dapper private party, good food on the breaks, and swingin' tunes with my fun friends!

San Diego Wedding Singers

I am part of a group called the San Diego Wedding Singers. We specialize in singing 5-part, a capella arrangements for weddings and events. As active music professionals, we also have the ability to coordinate with other musicians and groups to provide a variety of options for any event. The recordings of "Fever" and "Seasons of Love" in my tunz are some examples of our sound. Check us out at:

Friends of Patty-Cat & Kittle

I recently was able to be part of a recording project that is now being released on cd. "Friends of Patty-Cat & Kittle" by Barbara Cefalu is available at and will soon be available at Amazon and CDBaby.

The cd has a collection of songs based on a series of children's stories, also by Barbara Cefalu. It was truly a pleasure to work on this project with Barbara and many of my talented friends.

Enjoy! xo

Fabulous Friend!

This is my fabulous friend and colleague, Skyler!

Most recently, he included me in a recording project for a children's book that he was producing (and performing in).

Yeah for Sapporo and Sushi!

Rockin' Cranberries!

I get to spend a lot of time at Sea World during the holidays as a singer.

This year I designed and made new costumes for the Rockin' Cranberries. Fun!
