"Let Me Love" wins 2nd Place

"Let Me Love" was the First Runner-Up in the "Christian" category for the Second Quarter 2014 "Song of the Year" competition! I am so excited! You can listen to the song on my "Demos" page. It is also available for download and purchase on Spotify, YouTube Music, iTunes, and Google Play. Thanks for listening!


Music is my longest-standing love affair with craft. I started singing before I could talk, and started composing at the age of nine. That craft was developed through a two-year diploma program at Red Deer College.

Since then, I have taught many students how to play piano, as well as composed hundreds of songs, several of which have won awards.

I currently have two major music projects on the go: finishing a full-length musical called Queen of Persia that I am co-writing with the talented Candace Marshall, and recording an album of original Christian music. Meanwhile, I am available to write for other artists' projects. Please contact me if you would like me to write for you, or co-write with you.

I have included a sample of songs I have written or co-written before. These are all demos only. However, if you choose to purchase my music, it allows me to make more professionally-produced demos. Every track purchase helps.

All of my songs are available for licensing.

I have had many people tell me that my songs have a lot of "heart." This is true—I put my heart into my songs, and my songs tell stories that lay the emotions behind them bare. I hope those stories connect with you as you listen to my music.

From my heart to yours,
