at a Manhattan Recording Studio and built her own "make-shift"
recording studio at home. This is where she began producing her

Colleen's multifaceted gift of music. It includes her self-taught
guitar playing on the first track "Invisible Me," as well
as her talent for vocal arrangements. In addition to the tracks
included on "Maximum Pleasure", Colleen has 30 more basic
ideas for tracks just waiting to be realized.
