I grew up in Ohio, where I attended Bowling Green State University. After college I performed across the United States in musical theatre tours and regional productions. I eventually settled in South Florida where I've appeared in dozens of shows at local professional theatres. I branched out into cabaret and concert work when I began teaching. I currently teach drama at a lower/middle school, audition preparation classes for aspiring young professionals, and private voice lessons for students of all ages. There is something truly magical about the feeling I get from singing before a live audience. Sharing music and telling stories through song is like nothing else in the world, and helping others achieve that same connection between an audience and their own artistry is a joy.
