Latest Act

 The following video is from the latest piece my friend Whitney Smith and I have been working our tushies off to put together. It is a doubles dance trapeze act which has by far been the hardest yet most fun experiences I have had in a piece. We have had the opportunity to perform it at a fundraiser entitled 'Live Lung and Prosper' for a student at Onyx's dying sister, a fundraiser entitled 'A Night at the Movies' for the Rape Recover foundation, and last night at a truly fun event entitled 'Unveiled' at the Bar Deluxe. It has been an incredible experience being able to work with such a talented artist and dear friend. I am truly honored to know and be able to work with such incredible people. We are hoping to be able to perform this fantastic number many more times.

Fix You

 This song pulls on my heart strings.

"Fix You"

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
