I’m a Jazz Singer, teacher and blogger living in Brisbane with a talent and a passion for helping big-hearted creatives discover their authentic singing voices as well as their capacity to be creative and brave.
I haven't always been in alignment with my purpose however. I'm going to be honest with you, fear held me back for a long time.
It was seven years ago when I chose to redefine fear into an empowering emotion rather than a crippling one.
I ditched the corporate world and became a professional singer, performer, teacher and entrepreneur.
Born in Bundaberg, I grew up with the sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and 80's Greek pop music blaring from my family stereo.
The first moment I realized I wanted to be make a career as a singer was as a seven-year-old when my Dad bought me a Nina Simone cassette tape. Transfixed by Simone's dark glorious tone and the vibrant sounds of the music, I became hooked. I knew without a doubt that I wanted to make music for the rest of my life.
Doubt did set in however and I sought out professions that gave me a sense of security and importance. The problem was, it never did, no matter how high I climbed the corporate ladder.
My life since then has been a series of radical changes in order to find my way back home.
- quit my job in the public service
- lived in London for two years, sang in a 60’s garage band and traveled Europe
- taught English in Shanghai
- studied jazz in Australia
Now I perform nationally and internationally as a jazz singer. I have a Masters’ of Music from the Queensland Conservatorium and post graduate qualifications in vocal pedagogy and education.
Through major self-coaching, I have learned how to combine my talents to be of service to the world.
And I have to say it's a real privilege and an honour!
Watching my students transform when they find their voice and access their creativity is truly humbling.
My vision for Fearless Singer is to help you realize your full creative potential. I want Fearless Singer to be a place where you feel inspired, connected and supported to find your voice and live your best life.
Much love to you!
