I float between two musical worlds: Secular and Sacred.
Throughout junior high school, I studied piano and classical organ with Mr. Charles Boehm at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hicksville, NY. As a student at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ, I studied organ with Dr. George Markey and Joan Lippincott, and in 2011-15 with David Enlow in NYC.
In my 20’s, the call of the Pop world was so strong I walked away from my classical roots and liturgical training. I enrolled at NYC's The New School and immersed myself in contemporary songwriting, singing, producing and engineering; fulfilling my need to control every aspect of my musical expression.
A detour, in the form of clothing and fabric design studies, presented itself in the mid-1990s. First at NYC's Parson's School of Design for tailoring, then at the Fashion Institute of Technology where I studied pattern-making and draping for 2 years.
I had a Pop Rock band in the 2000’s and performed in NYC's China Club, Cheetah, Downtime, Acme Underground, CBGB's, The Elbow Room, Kenny's Castaways, The Bitter End, and Hard Rock Cafe on 57th St.
During the summers of 2012-14 I returned to Westminster for 'Choral Conducting Intensive’ with James Jordan and faculty @ The Conducting Institute.
Since 2012 I’ve been blessed to be the Organist and Choir Director at Poughkeepsie Reformed Church.
If you can read music and sing please consider joining us for Thursday night choir rehearsals @ 7:30pm. We sing Traditional and Contemporary Choral music.
