“Shine a light.

Touch a life.”

Hi, I’m Amy.

I was raised in Georgia and South Carolina under the bask of Southern Charm. Now, I’m based in New York City where I continue to work with performers and educators around the world.

I began Little Ray of Sunshine in 2016 after years of working with international artists, teaching artists, administrators, educators, and world-class performing arts organizations like Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Opera Guild, the LA Phil, and Lincoln Center.

I Care Deeply About…

Why “A Little Ray of Sun”?

Two quick stories:

Growing up, my father told me: “In whatever capacity you find yourself – whether you are performing, teaching, or leading a meeting – shine a light and touch a life.”

Years later, when I was hell-bent to make the best of a not-so-sunny day, my husband called me “’Lil’ Ray.” For better or worse, the name stuck.

Put the two together and here we are. They are daily reminders to use my talent, creativity, and passion to offer a ‘little ray of sunshine’ in all that I do. It is my hope that through our arts and education work, we can create immersive and transformative experiences that inspire, give faith, bring joy, and add a spark of sunshine in a sometimes-challenging world.

I love to make really cool stuff that has the potential to change lives. And I’d love to work with you to create the next magical performing arts moment.
