“Everyday” is an original 10-minute musical about two quirky hopeless romantics who ride the same subway car everyday and have never said hello…until today. When their dreams and reality collide and they realize they are perfectly not right for each other, their morning commute takes an unexpected (and hilarious) turn.
“Everyday” was presented at the West Village Musical Theater Festival in July, 2014 and received awards for BEST MUSICAL, BEST LYRICS, BEST ORIGINAL SCORE, BEST DIRECTION, and BEST ACTRESS. Give it a listen, below!

Written as a standalone cabaret song, “Text Me” is a commentary on how our relationships with one another are affected by our relationships with, well, technology.
This song was written as a standalone piece, about the struggle with trying to be original, trying to find the words to say what really matters to you, and not simply to say what has already been said, to sing someone else’s song.
