I've been involved with music since preschool: Singing solos publicly since age 5. In addition to my piano and trumpet skills, I started singing Handel's Messiah in high-school. First, as a baritone and then as a tenor during my senior year. I've sung on every continent save Antarctica. And have performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fischer Hall, Kennedy Center and several major cathedrals.
During the foundationer year of the Tallis Scholars Summer School in England, director Peter Philips commented that I had a "very impressive" voice.
James Jordan, of the Westminster Choir College, made the observation that I was "very musical" after working with him a week at the inaugural year of the Choral Music Institute at Oxford.
My vocal training includes that with Richard Conrad (Boston), Charles Reid (Andrews University), Stephen Smith & Paul Sperry (Aspen Music Festival), David Jones (Teacher Mentoring Program), Mark St. Laurent (Massachusetts).
I've worked as Director of Vocal Activities and Choral Studies at Walla Walla University and as a graduate student at Andrews University, I maintained a voice studio.
My students have successfully auditioned for and been accepted into the vocal programs at the following :
Indiana University, Bloomington, Michigan State University, Bethel College and Western Michigan University.
