I was born in a small town in British Columbia Canada, where I lived till I was 3. I then moved to Penticton BC where I was raised until 9 years old.
My mother and I travelled around the country for a long period of time where I would sing in the back of the car to all my favourite Disney songs, and the national anthem at the top of my lungs. I would sing in the bathtub as well, knowing my favourite songs forward and backwards.
As my mother worked in Sales and Marketing for a Radio station, I was exposed to many artists and was able to see the workings of many concerts from the back stage view. At the age of 10 I than moved to Ibiza Spain where I lived for one year. I would come home from school each day and head to my bedroom, singing for hours.
After 1 year I moved to Mallorca Spain where my singing career began. I started out doing little events around the island as a hobby and then decided that I wanted to become a little more serious with my talent. I wanted to make a name for myself on the island and show people what I was capable of. Five years ago when I was 14, my Dad had built a studio at the bottom of our house, with a recording booth to record all my music by my favourite artists.
Now I’m doing events around the Island and am blessed to have the amazing opportunity to share my love of singing and music with many.
