Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Originally from the WI, my career took me to New York City. I lived
there for 10 years, and am now starting a new chapter in Boston.
But I'll always be Mary from Wisconsin. You can take the girl out
of the midwest, but you can't take the midwest out of the
You're not going to believe me, but I'm a professional opera
singer. Yup, music is my full-time job that pays the bills.
BUT I'm very easygoing, kind of shy, always smiling, a goofball,
generally an optimist, and adventuresome.
My ideal man wouldn't be opposed to coming to my concerts and
experiencing artistic types of things. Who doesn't want free
concert tickets? No need to know anything about classical music,
just a desire to support your rockstar ladyfriend. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Performing engagements all over the country, but I do have some big
My second love is craft beer and homebrewing. I'm pretty serious
about it, actually, and I do work in the industry when I have spare
time. I would love to have a manly homebrewing assistant that I can
order around. Looking to fill that position permanently.
During football season you'll find me watching the Packers. I hope
you don't mind sharing me with Aaron Rodgers. I'm not so sure about
the Packers bars in Boston yet...so I may be commuting down to NYC
occasionally to go to my home-away-from-home, Kettle of Fish.
Also, I love the Red Sox, but I will never...I repeat NEVER be a
Patriots fan. Thank you for the Super Bowl, that was awesome, but
I've become more interested in running and fitness in the past
couple of years. I'll be running my first marathon in Chicago in
the fall! I also love hiking and I'm excited to be closer to Maine
- one of my favorite hiking getaways.
I'm traveling more and more for work and I'm really enjoying that.
It can be hard to thoroughly explore when I'm working, but I always
try to find the local craft breweries.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-assembling Ikea furniture
-singing, of course
-educating anyone about beer and not being a jerk about it

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Best lady friends
Music and all things artistic
-A super comfy bed
-Good coffee in the morning
-Dangly interesting earrings
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- what music I have to learn next.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Define typical for a working musician...
If I'm not in rehearsal or performing (or having a drink with
colleagues after), I'm probably going to take the opportunity to
stay home and relax with some tv, or a book, and a beer. My
schedule can be quite hectic, so I appreciate my quiet time when I
can get it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm terrified of spiders, and I believe pedicures are a form of

Dating-wise, I'm ultimately looking for something long term, but
that doesn't mean I want to get married tomorrow! Geez, calm down!
You are putting way to much pressure on the situation. ;)
I really have no desire to rush into anything, and I feel like the
best relationships blossom from a good foundation.
Truthfully, my career is very important to me, and it will take the
right man to understand what I do and support it.
I really value good conversation and communication skills. The art
of the phone call is not dead!
But I believe laughter is also a part of good conversation, so I
hope you are a little bit of a goof like me.
