3 Interesting Facts:

1. I'm a beatboxer! I started doing it as a joke in 7th grade but then I just kept on going and eventually beatboxed for my collegiate acappella group through college!

2. When I was just 15 years old I was a soloist in the New York Premier of Calling All Dawns (a Grammy Award winning song cycle) in Lincoln Center in NYC!

3. I love Celtic music! I spent my high school career as part of a professional women's ensemble where we went on concert tours across the US performing sacred and secular music, polyphony, medieval chant, sacred Irish music, and American sacred harp pieces!
