High-Resolution Color Photos
Ali’s story-telling, inspirational, acoustic, Americana style reminds some of a cross between Colbie Callait, Nora Jones, Cristina Perri and Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries. Ali’s music is soothing, yet passionate and a perfect fit for the soundtrack of the next big Rom-Com movie or touching commercial.

Never Say Never – The mid lifer’s guide to setting your dreams back in motion
Ali knows how difficult it can be to change your life mid stream. She was 40 years old when she picked up a guitar and started taking lessons, her attempt at righting a wrong turn she took in her early 20’s to stop singing and “get serious” about a career. In this talk Ali lightly touches on the catastrophic event that was the catalyst for her life change and focuses on how to get past the broken record in our heads that prevents us from pursuing the lives we imagined for ourselves.
