It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and [it] will play itself. - J S Bach Jul 22, 2018

    Hello, everyone. I am a professional classical singer (on hiatus for personal reasons) living in Eastern Washington State.

    I attended the Peabody conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland and studied voice with John Shirley-Quirk. After conservatory, I moved to Washington, DC where I became a full-time Gentleman of the Choir at Washington National Cathedral. In addition to singing at the cathedral, I sang with other groups in the DC area, including the Washington Bach Consort, Cathedra, and the Folger Consort. In 2016, my grandparents became unable to care for themselves, so I decided to take a couple years off and care for them in their final days.

    Although my profession and the bulk of my training and experience has been in classical voice (especially early music), I studied piano for 15 years and continue to play daily. I have played piano professionally, as well, but not to the extent that I have sung. As I have plenty of time to practice piano these days, I am taking advantage of this and trying to improve my skills.
