My love for life and expression of music grew in stages like that of a blossoming rose. And as a rose I believe I was nurtured in God's world to bless His people. At age twenty five I felt it time to collect the music that captures moments and images taken from my own life and own heart. When I was young, I was like a closed bud, wrapped tightly in leaves of uncertainty and doubt. Those leaves kept my dreams locked inside. But, as I ventured into life the dreams stirred within and ambition unwrapped the leaves of timidity. Petals peered out to a full world of opportunities and beauty. I began to travel more and learned to divert from the ordinary. My free spirit was nurtured on the road. The music introduced to me during those road trips developed my interpretation of life through notes of muisc. As events of my life unfolded, music was always there and expression became a true part of me. My music opened my heart for others to see and I wanted them to share in my passion for life. My many adventures and dreams merge together to fully open each petal of my soul. In full bloom I realize I am God's rose, made to bless, and with the gift He gave me, I pray to do so. Who I have become is reflected in this collection of music- the story of my life as a rose.
