Mercury is The Messenger. It is a small red planet spinning fast around our sun. Mercury is quicksilver, a liquid metal that slips right through your hands. Mercury is a poison that could drive us mad or a car that could drive us away.......
Apollo is The Healer. He is the God of music; the bringer of light and truth. Apollo and his twin sister Artemis are the archers; the protectors. Apollo is hope in the face of the unknown. It is a race. Apollo put man on the moon and changed everything.
Music has always been my favorite thing.
I still want to be a musician when I grow up.
I was born and raised in Eau Claire, Wisconsin where I first picked up a violin almost 30 years ago. I graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in Zoology and a focus on Astronomy. Go figure.
I currently live in Neenah, Wisconsin with my husband, 2 teenage sons, 5 chickens, 3 cats, 2 dogs, 3 mortgages, 2 sisters, 1 small business, 5 (maybe 6) friends, 1 big lake, and too much snow.
You can find me performing my own music at unique venues throughout northeast Wisconsin. I also play violin with numerous local bands including a jazz duo and the local Celtic trio, Shamrock City.
My original music has been showcased on WPR's Simply Folk, Appleton's Mile of Music, Big Top Chautauqua, Steel Bridge Radio, 91.1 The Avenue, WAPL 105.7 Home Brewed, and The Great Unknown Radio.
