Music is my breath. My father, who exposed me to his delightful catalog every weekend, is my biggest inspiration. Sarah Vaughn. Luciano Pavarotti. Shirley Bassey. Minnie Ripperton. War. Santana. Nancy Wilson. Bill Withers. Grover Washington. Change. Johnny Hartman. John Coltrane. SalSoul Orchestra. Barry White. Miles Davis. Barbara Streisand. Nat King Cole. Otis Redding and many others, were constantly heard and leaving their mark. Creating a legacy for my son. Taking the road less traveled and discovering those surprise moments that take my breath away, also inspire.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT RAW, is the safe embrace where everyone creative is encouraged to share themselves for a magical and unforgettable night! Thanks to RAW, there are no more walls!! The RAW showcase is a family reunion for like-minded souls.


Being grateful for everyday that I get to be my true self. Coloring outside the lines, and looking for the flowers in cement. Easing into Love. Observing flowers in bloom. Good food. Laughter until my belly aches with joy. Great company. And creating MUSIC!!
