On My Own


What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

I love that music gives me the platform to provide visibility, inspiration, and advocacy for marginalized communities, especially LGBTQ+ youth.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

My dream is to sing with Brandi Carlile, a fellow queer artist and one of the greatest singer/songwriters of our time. She inspires me both as a musician and as a human being, carrying herself with integrity, courage, and kindness wherever she goes.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

I would create a music video for my song, The Exit, which gives hope to LGBTQ+ youth in these dark times. I would then partner with the Trevor Project and use the video to help raise funds and awareness for their incredible work!
