I grew up in the farmlands of Chaptico, Maryland. A place where I would sing and play my trumpet as loud as I wanted to….much to the dismay of my 7 siblings. I was involved in band and chorus during my elementary and middle school years. While attending Chopticon High School, my love for vocal music increased under the direction of Patty Kuzmick. I took 3 choral classes during my senior year. I was also introduced to the world of musical theatre.
I went on to receive a full academic and music scholarship to Morgan State University, where I studied vocal music with a concentration in musical theater. I toured the world with the amazing Morgan State University Choir under the direction of Dr. Nathan Carter. After receiving two degrees from Morgan State in vocal performance and education, I decided to return to my roots in southern Maryland.
I taught choral music at Great Mills High School and coached several a cappella groups at my alma mater, Chopticon. I soon yearned to be in an a cappella group myself. I moved to the DC area and discovered a very accomplished group of musicians in an ensemble called Vox Pop. Our 9 person group went on to open for Afro Blue, headline several local concerts, and record a full length album entitled Mandate. Vox Pop gave me all of the tools and knowledge to be where I am today. A very excited member of this awesome family, Ball In The House. I look forward to making fantastic music and memories with these gentlemen. We all share the same love and care for our passion which is music. This is my dream come true…
