Hailing from Portugal, I have been passionate about music and photography from a very early age.
As a child, I aspired to be a singer. The Phantom of the Opera was an early inspiration for singing and performing. Some of my early influences were rock and opera, having been classically trained as a pianist from the age of 5.
At the tender age of 7 I was cast in an Oliver Twist musical where I discovered my passion for acting and performing on a stage in front of a live audience.
In 2007, leaving all family and friends behind in my homeland of Portugal in an attempt to pursue my dream as a professional singer, I embraced Canada as my new home and stepping stone to the rest of the world.
Within a few months, I found myself fronting one of the most in demand bands on the circuit in Toronto and performing at all the top clubs and casinos.
The desire to travel overseas and the window of opportunity to do so came shortly thereafter. Taking on a new challenge, I was honoured to be asked to join a band which whom I played world renown clubs like Spasso at the Grand Hyatt in Bangkok and B.A.T.S. at the Shangri-La Hotel in Jakarta.
My repertoire consists of over 200 songs, having the ability to learn both leads and harmonies with great ease. Instrumental knowledge includes piano, guitar and percussion.
As the daughter of a videographer/photographer, I found myself taking a liking to being both in front and behind the cameras. Never shy and always entertaining.
Photography and Music have been hand in hand throughout my life journey and I have found success in my career as both a musician and a photographer/model.
I am very easy to work with because I am first and foremost an artist. I am imaginative and creative, professional and fun.
