Currently based in Brooklyn, I am carving out a career as a contemporary singer, pianist, composer, and teacher. My studies began with three semesters studying Vocal Jazz Performance at The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music, followed by five years studying Classical Voice Performance and Music Education at SUNY Fredonia, and three years studying Opera Performance at the University of Cincinnati - College Conservatory of Music.
