What is your highest degree and from what school? Doctor of Musical Arts in Choral Conducting, The University of Alabama

What is your philosophy? I firmly believe that music serves humanity as a powerful tool that connects people from all walks of life, beliefs, and backgrounds. Music allows us to express thoughts, feelings, and ideas with each other in powerful ways that transcend the written word. I am excited to share my passion for making music as a means of fostering human connection with the Texas Boys Choir and all of the other choral ensembles at FWAFA and TeSA, as well as the lives we touch with our music.

Favorite Artist (musician, writer, director, painter, etc.): My favorite composers are Giovanni Luigi da Palestrina, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Gabriel Fauré, Maurice Duruflé, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Benjamin Britten, John Rutter,  Ēriks Ešenvalds, and Dan Forrest.  My favorite singers are Josh Groban, Sara Bareilles, and Kelly Clarkson.

What are your hobbies? I enjoy playing video games (especially MarioKart), watching television shows and movies, reading, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
