27 (rapidly descending on 30. Time moves faster every year. Right?). Living in Nashville. Working in nonprofit. Trying to see if I can ever maybe one day pay my bills making music. Singer/songwriter. Play piano and am influenced by Motown, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Carole King, James Taylor, The Band, Counting Crows, Patty Griffin, John Mayer, Sara Bareilles, Fiona Apple, Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell, and on and on.
Fell in love with running in 2011 while training for my first half marathon. Running fills a certain space in my life that nothing else can. Trying to make a name for yourself in music can be frustrating and feel hopeless sometimes. It doesn’t matter how much talent you have and often, even the amount of work you put into it is no guarantee. There are so many forces you can’t control. Running is a great outlet for me. There are always things you can’t control, of course, but I love that I get out of it what I put into it. I love busting my ass and seeing results and I love that it’s one little thing that is just for me. It’s changed my life and I don’t see myself ever going back!
