Welcome to my web page. I am a classical singer and voice teacher (B.M. North Carolina School of the Arts, M.M. New England Conservatory of Music) currently pursuing a doctorate and teaching voice at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Previously, I taught voice at Earlham College and a First-year Seminar in the core curriculum of Butler University. I am also a professional writer and a graduate of the Odyssey Writing Workshop.
I'm a classic interstitial artist: I thrive in the places where genres and artistic disciplines intersect. Practically speaking, this means that I incorporate things like yoga in my voice teaching, sing everything from Bach to the Beatles, lead vocal improvisation workshops, write works for performance as well as for the page, and often combine several of my interests in one project. I believe passionately that singing is a vital form of artistic expression and that everyone should be encouraged to develop their own unique voice with a healthy technique.
