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.
Pop music beckoned once again and I went back into my recording studio and released my debut CD in 2000; performing my music 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.
In 2009 I returned to my classical roots as Organist and Choir Director at Rhinebeck Reformed Church. During the summers of 2012-14 I returned to Westminster for 'Choral Conducting Intensive’ with James Jordan and faculty @ The Conducting Institute.
I now have the perfectly balanced musical life: As music director at Poughkeepsie Reformed Church, and continuing to write Electro Pop music.
