What pays the bills? I sing, write songs, and perform nationally using lever and pedal harp. I also am a backup singer in a Pink Floyd tribute band and I am the front woman in a psychedelic rock band call the Royal Furs.

What’s your hidden talent? The flexed arm hang—I set a record for it in high school.

What is your favorite piece to play on the harp? I feel the most passionate when I sing and play songs that I have written. However, I thoroughly enjoy “Reverie” by Alphonse Hasselmans

What do you do to avoid practicing? Clean my house.

What’s your favorite smartphone app? Instagram! I also like an app called Pro Metronome that is free and easy to use.

What did you want to be when you were a kid? A singer or a detective.
