I was born in Marshfield, Wisconsin where I studied piano for ten years, played string bass in school orchestra and took private lessons for bass for a year. I sang in multiple vocal groups in high school, like the Central Wisconsin Chamber Chorale, the Madrigal choir and a barbershop quartet. Now I am a Junior at the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities where I study Music Education-Choral and Political Science. As a tenor, I have sung in the University Singers for three years and study voice under Prof. John De Haan. I have also sung as a choral apprentice in the Minnesota Chorale and with the Lyra Baroque Orchestra. Several years ago, I played bass in the orchestra pit for the Fantastiks.
