Where did you attend College (and what is your degree(s)?
I went to the College of New Jersey. My Degree is in Vocal Music Education.

Who was your favorite teacher and why?
My favorite teacher was Mr. Ripley. He was my 9th grade history teacher. He was really passionate about history and would often act out scenes from the French Revolution. I enjoyed his class so much that I took an Advanced Placement class in European History with him in my senior year just so I could have him again as a teacher.

 In my second life, I would like to organize community space for live music performances or be a black and white photographer.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot... Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

Hobbies or Activities/organizations you are active in?
I work at Boston Children's Chorus part-time. The organization's mission is to tie together music and social justice which are two huge passions of mine. I really enjoy movement arts such as a dance and yoga, I recently started taking Static Trapeze and Aerial Hoop classes at a Circus Arts School. I also really enjoy knitting; it's how I survive Boston winters.

Accomplishments or Honors you have achieved that you are proud of?
Last summer I was selected to participate as a full conductor for the Sarteano Chamber Choral Conducting Workshop which takes place in Tuscany, Italy.
