What brought on your interest in music?
Music is a way to creatively express me and it peaked my interest at a very young age. I used to enjoy singing along to movies as a small child. In school, I joined various school ensembles all the way through high school. I enjoyed participating in chorus, orchestras, and musicals.
When did you start your studies?
I started violin lessons at the age of 8 and studied privately all the way through high school. I began piano at the age of 15.

My grandmother played the violin as a young adult. She even played during her college years at Ohio University. We shared a special connection through music. Unfortunately, no one else in my family has been musically inclined but they are very supportive.
Have You Participated in Any Extra Curricular Organizations or music clubs?
I have participated in various vocal ensembles in my college career. Currently, I participate in my church chorus and cantor services.
