The Journey's Inception:

On a seemly average day when Ivory was seventeen years old a very special English teacher shared a musical selection with her class. The piece was Loreena McKennitt’s musical recreation of the Victorian ballad Lady of Shalott by Lord Alfred Tennyson. From that moment, Ivory was forever changed.
She was enthralled by the internationally derived sounds of Loreena’s music and specifically the ethereal textures of the harp. Unable to satisfy her interest passively, nearly two years later Ivory started taking harp lessons as a personal hobby. Around eight months after beginning her studies, Hurricane Katrina happened. Displaced from home, university and teacher, Ivory's harpistry trailed off into non-existence.
Five years later as the president of the University of New Orleans International Student Organization, Ivory was responsible for hosting the institutions largest annual student production International Night which showcases our local and international student body’s unique flair through musical and dance performances, cultural exhibits, a full-service world cuisine buffet, fashion show and much more for 800+ guests and participants. As custom would have it, all presidents participate by performing in the showcase. With a month and a half left before International Night 2010: A Symphony of Cultures was to debut, Event Maestro Ivory envisioned taking the stage as a harpist and she bravely did.
Four years after that monumental event, Ivory earned her Bachelor of the Arts degree in Music graduating as the first harpist from the University of New Orleans.

Currently, Ivory lives in New Orleans, yet dreams of finding her true home abroad where she can invest in her artistry completely. While still in New Orleans, Ivory has chosen to spend most of her personal time developing her art and employing the latest advances in technology in effort to share her craft globally, all the while collaborating with similarly passionate and creative Artists locally and around-the-world. Above that, Ivory's greatest desire is to align herself with the most cosmically profound souls found along her travels to create a better world through their combined manifestations. 

Words to Live by:

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”   Steve Jobs
