I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.


I was born in a (very) small town:  Winnie, Texas, between Houston, Galveston and Beaumont.  I loved to sing from an early age and thought I sounded just as good as Michael Jackson (never could dance like him, though).  I played trombone in the marching band.  I originally wanted to be a sportscaster but picked up the guitar and it was all over!  I attended Lamar University in Beaumont, TX, where I took three years of voice training, sang in the choir and was in the Cardinal Singers, a performing pop group.  I play the guitar; my favorite artist is James Taylor.  I also play piano and harmonica.  I am very excited to be at TMS!
