Life fascinates me. As does the idea of the impossible task of self
summarizing the uniqueness of personage. But here we go..
I'm a seeking spiritualist who is constantly reading and striving
to live mindfully in a spirit of self actualization. My passion and
'work' in vocal music allows me to grow with and help others to
discover the healing and expressive potential of their human
I continually strive to live each day from a foundational sense of
gratitude and find that gratitude begets gratitude. I try to live
this, because it works.
What I’m doing with my life
A few months I finished all my work and dissertation for my
doctorate in Sacred Music. Finally!
Right now I'm the Director of all Choral Activities at a High
School in Scottsdale. Love working with teenagers from choral music
from Palestrina to Imagine Dragon. I draw inspiration from their
unique and maturing out look on life.
When I'm not working, I'm usually running or exercising and
balancing that with meditation and yoga. And probably drinking
unhealthy amounts of coffee :)
I’m really good at
Seeing the virtuous qualities in people before their perceived

The six things I could never do without
The human voice; a beautiful pen; black coffee brewed or pressed
with love; my precious nieces and nephews; books that challenge my
consciousness to expand; human intimacy in all forms.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where I left my car keys and how the time I spend searching for
them thusly alters the entire course of my life's trajectory.
On a typical Friday night I am
having quiet movie nights with a handful from my inner circle and
feeling grateful for the next morning when I can sleep in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private? Seems like that comes later.
