My formal music training began as weekly piano lessons when I was seven. In junior high, I played the French Horn in band, the piano in jazz band, and sang in advanced choir. During high school, I sang in both chamber and concert choirs, participated in several musical theater productions, and even directed the marching band as co-drum major. I started taking voice lessons.
In 2007, I directed a touring missionary choir through middle Tennessee, and in 2009 I served a performing mission to Nauvoo, IL as a Yong Performing Missionary.
As a college freshman, I joined Weber State University’s Chamber and Concert Choirs and performed with them for five years. I served as president of the WSU Concert Choir in 2010 and assistant director during the fall 2011 semester. Additionally, I sang several roles in operatic productions, including Luiz in Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Gondoliers” and Frank in Johann Strauss Jr.’s “Die Fledermaus”.
For my culminating project, I prepared an hour-long voice recital that included songs in English, Italian, German, and French. Finally, I completed my student teaching with the guidance of Sheryl Cazier at Syracuse High School, working with all of the choral ensembles there.
I have worked as a full-time choir director at Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada and Morgan Middle and High Schools, in Morgan Utah. I have also worked with students at Ogden High and Bonneville High Schools, in Weber County, Utah. In spring 2012, I was a featured guest soloist with the Utah Oratorio Society’s performances of Maurice Durufle’s “Requiem” Mass at the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City. I have also participated in numerous community and church choirs, including the Wasatch Master Chorale (Ogden, Utah) and the Las Vegas Master Singers.
