I started my musical life as a pianist. In high school I started singing some classical pieces and ended up singing with a retired opera singer who told me I had talent. I went to college for opera at Indiana University and discovered early music, which I delved into in graduate school. I have sung on many different stages and currently sing with the Austin Lyric Opera.

I prefer singing such things as Vivaldi and Handel, as well as Monteverdi and Barbara Strozzi.
