When I was nine years old, my father had me tag along with him to the rehearsal of his Men’s Barbershop Choir. That first rehearsal is truly the beginning of my love of singing. At sixteen years old, I started my own non-profit called “Northwest Vocal Project” (NVP). A men’s barbershop chorus for young men. Through its ten year history we grew from thirteen members to fifty, placing in the world championships, and winning a number of youth choral festivals. The chorus also helped my three older brothers start to sing. Soon after the formation of “NVP”, we formed our own quartet called “Momma’s Boys”. Barbershop led me to music, and inspired me to begin my professional career. After a few years performing musical theater around the northwest, and performing for a few years on cruise-ships, I found my true love, classical voice. Currently I am finishing my degree in Opera Performance at Boise State under Doctor Laura Rushing-Raynes, all while I teach voice and work with Opera Idaho.
