The D.C. Metro area is currently my home, where I teach high school music. I've spent way too much time in school and have Masters degrees in voice performance and conducting. I'll probably get a doctorate soon, too. Obviously I sing, but I can also jam out on the piano, clarinet, saxophone, and the drums a little. Besides music, I am also passionate about traveling, cultures, and languages. (I speak Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French and German.) I love reading intriguing books by authors ancient and modern. The outdoors is where I love to be, especially when it involves golden sunshine and carefree days. I grew up in the mountains of the West, but I have also grown to LOVE beach life—especially on the Mediterranean.
