What made you fall in love with music?

I’ve been in love with music for as long as I can remember. I think Michael Jackson might’ve been my first favorite artist, and that was before I started kindergarten. So even as a little girl, I’d developed my own feelings and opinions on what I loved and was passionate about. I don’t think I can pinpoint it to just one thing that drew me in.


Best concert you have ever been to?

Bruno Mars – 2013 Moonshine Jungle Tour. I don’t think I stopped smiling the entire show.


What genre of music do you listen to the most?

Anything mainstream – pop, country, Christian…


Who’s your favorite artist/band?



What drew you to NSAI? 

This is actually my second stint here! I am a fan of the organization and believe in its advocacy work. Songwriters have no bigger champions than Bart and Jennifer and our Board of Directors, and I love being part of making a difference here. The music business would be nothing without songwriters, and it energizes me to know that my work plays a part in sustaining songwriting as a profession.
