Ali’s Music

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.

Ali’s Biography for Speaking Engagements

Ali’s Speaking Topics

The C Card and Me – How I beat stage IV cancer, twice

Ali shares her experience of being diagnosed with late stage colon cancer and the extraordinary steps that followed, sharing excerpts and anecdotes from her book along with the hope and signs that we are genuinely making progress in the battle against cancer.

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.
