I grew up in a small town in upstate New York and country music was always playing in my house. My passion is and always will be live music.

I created Nash In Tune in the early months of 2017 to give a voice and recognition to all Country music artists in Nashville.

Nashville has been a city I have been drawn to for many years due to its music scene, and I jumped on the chance to move here in July 2016 as soon as it was an option in my life.  With my love of live music and finding new artists, writing and sharing it seemed like a perfect opportunity, leading me to start working with Nash In Tune.

I studied Animal Science in Wyoming for 4 years, but moving to Nashville, I saw music playing a part in my future and career.  I am currently a student at MTSU in Murfreesboro studying Music Business.  My plan is to explore many different parts of the music industry and find what fits.  Ultimately, I would love the chance to go to law school and work in entertainment law.

My first concert was Phil Vassar and Montgomery Gentry at the Virginia State Fair in 2003.  Country music has always been a huge influence in my life.  Since I am always looking for new music and artists to listen to, it can be a little difficult to narrow down who are my favorites.

I spent the first 27 years of my life in my hometown just outside of Boston. Don’t get me wrong Boston is a great city (with the best sports teams!), but something has always been missing in my life that wasn’t there in Boston. So in September of 2017, after the lease on my apartment ended, I packed up my life and drove 1,000+ miles to Nashville. I came here because I’ve wanted to live in the epicenter of my favorite genre of music. Writing for Nash In Tune gives me a chance to learn more about the music I love and strengthen my appreciation for the artists, songwriters, musicians, and anyone in-between. And since I’m not musically inclined, writing will help me achieve this.

I work as a histotechnician for a dermatology lab. My hobbies include tailgating games, trivia, sports, Corgis, Game of Thrones, Westworld, and world travel.
