Thank you for stopping by to check out my website. Below is my bio. It's a little formal, but it's up to date and lets you know what I do as an artist. In addition to all of these singer things, I am the founding Executive Producer of LOLA, Local Opera Local Artists here in Austin TX, voice teacher and Community Liaison with the Armstrong Community Music School where I have been for over 12 years, and I'm a regular with the Industry Night variety show. But that's enough about me, oh wait, there's more down below!
With deep gratitude and joy,
