I'm from Portland, Oregon. I love music - teaching it, writing it, playing it. I particularly love writing for the theatre and have written and produced three musicals with a local non-profit theatre. Besides music, I love sports, coffee, traveling, books and spending time with my family and friends. I'm a quiet, easy-going person. Highlights of my typical days include: rainy afternoons with a cup of coffee and a good book, studying/learning more about my favorite passion - composing music, taking walks in the sunshine, and attending anything art related as often as time and budget allow (music, theatre, ballet, etc). :)
Outside of the US, I've traveled to the Dominican Republic, Peru, Argentina and Uruguay. Ever since the age of 13 (when I composed a piece about the Serengeti Plains in Africa), my dream has been to someday travel there and see it for myself. Other dreams include getting my music published, composing a symphony, reading all of Charles Dickens' novels, and learning what it truly means to selflessly love/give to the needs of those around me on a daily basis.
