I had the privilege of working with Music Supervisor, Maureen Crowe, on the Whitney Houston biopic, "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" which is expected to be released at the end of 2022. I also worked on Jennifer Lopez’s soon-to-be released project. For the 44th Annual Kennedy Center Honors, worked on the music for many of the presenters and performers like Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey and Bette Midler. In October I was involved with preparing the music for Keep Memory Alive’s 25th Power of Love gala which included performances by Smokey Robinson and Babyface. I am currently helping John Clayton with music preparation for the Jazz Cruise 2022.

Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it's quite the opposite.

I had the honor of being a guest speaker for Dr. Sara Graef's " Women in Music " class at California State University Los Angeles this past Thursday. I shared my professional experiences as a female in the music industry.

Dr. Graef also encouraged me, if I felt comfortable, to share difficult experiences such as harassment, discrimination, and racism.

There were times when I struggled with these incidents that I felt ashamed; this happened because I'm too nice(aka didn't know how to say no), because...

Music Performance

June 28th, 2021

We did it. Total of 15 songs, all arranged by John Clayton,

assisted by yours truly.


When we were in the studio this past weekend, almost 50 musicians played together to create this music. I was so emotional, tears running down my cheeks many times, trying not to lose it. That special feeling, words can't describe, if you are a musician/writer/music prep person, you know the feeling I am talking about, right?​


Music is so amazing, so soothing to the heart and soul. It's a wonderful feeling.

Zoom Music Recital

December 20, 2020

Covidでエンターテイメント業界も大打撃を受け、先を見通しづらいこのような状況の中で今自分にできることは何か。そう思い、はじめたZoomでの授業。クライアントさんからのリクエストに応えるべく、先週日曜日にZoomコンサートを開催。何もかもが初めての試みすぎて超大変でしたが、生徒さんのお友達やご近所さん、遠方に住まれているご家族などたっくさんの方々にお集まりいただいて、皆さんの 純粋な 笑顔 を見ていたら感動して涙が出ました。私はただのMCでズームのハウスキーピングをしていただけなのに、終わった後の達成感は自分のコンサートが終わった時のと似ていて、不思議な感覚でした。音楽の力ってやばいよマジで本当にすごい。これからも、これも何かいい方向にシフトするチャンスだと肝に銘じて、日々修行していこうと自分に誓った日になりました。ちゃんちゃん🎵

I was reminded yet again of the healing power of music as everyone involved laughed and clapped in support of one another. Music is where I am and always need to be.
