I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember, but never in front of anyone; at least not until recently.  At family parties I found myself singing in the closet so no one could see me.  In early 2010 I took a trip to San Diego to visit my cousins and was dragged to a karaoke bar.  I overcame my fear, sang in front of a crowd, got positive feedback, and as soon as I got home to Massachusetts I signed up for voice lessons and started singing in public.  I performed at small shows at the studio I took lessons at, won a local karaoke competition and also made it to the top 7 of Orlando’s American Idol Experience.  Where this sudden boost of confidence came from, I may never know.  (My cousins in San Diego are taking the credit for that). I’ve also always kept a journal where I write lyrics; it’s like therapy for me.  Music is such an amazing release and no matter what mood I’m in, when I’m singing I’m happy.  I like to write and sing songs that are about things close to my heart.  I can’t see myself singing something I couldn’t relate to.

 

Music isn’t the only thing I’m passionate about.  I’m involved in two charities that are extremely important to me.  In 2008, I became a board member of ZimKids, a nonprofit in Zimbabwe that supports orphaned children.  ZimKids raises money for books, food, medical supplies and clothes.  Since ZimKids was founded, over 100 children have received the medical attention and food they need to survive.  In 2009, my cousin Matthew was killed in action during his deployment to Afghanistan.  I have recently become the Director of Special Events for the SSG Matthew A. Pucino Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organization that benefits our wounded military heroes and their families.  Heaven was Needing a Hero was recorded in memory of Matt.

 

I love my family, my friends, New England sports and country music :)
