Business Name:

Pure Avant-Garde


Pittsburgh, PA






Web Site:



As I talk with fellow artists I have realized that the support groups are few and far in between for us. It has amazed me how many artists give up or get burned out with the artistic process and I believe it is because of a lack of joy in the art they are creating. Somewhere along the path they have strayed from their purpose, which has caused them to lose the pleasure of creating.
To which end Pure Avant-Garde was created as a tool to help artists like you keep the artistic fires burning. The Avant-Garde was an elite group of soldiers who helped map and plan the route that the whole army would
follow. We as artists are our own guard. It is we who must map the pathway to accomplishing our dreams.


Come Journey with Me!


Methods of Working:

Email, Phone and In-Person or a Combination.



As a Performing Artist I am familiar with Musicians, Actors, and Directors and the issues that can block our creative process. However, I have found that the obstacles that block us from creating transcend the art fields. We may have different ways of expressing ourselves but the fundamentals are the same.


Individual Services Offered:

I want to help you rediscover your Joy in creating. A somewhat vague statement I know but in the end if you are joyfully creating I believe that many of the issues we struggle with will straighten themselves out. Together we can overcome your anxiety so that you can confidentially market your craft. Organize your life so that you make the most use of your time and space. Or I can simply be a point of contact for you, an accountability partner, whatever you need as you hone and sharpen your craft.


Training and Experience:

I have a Masters of Music in Performance from New York University, Bachelors of Music in Performance and a Minor in Drama from Oral Roberts University. 

Currently I am working on finishing my Creativity Coaching Certification through the Creativity Coaching Association. And have recently completed a Tefol Certification (Teaching English as a Second Language).
