What was your favorite musical moment?
In college, I sang with the top a cappella choir at Illinois Wesleyan University. The biggest honor our director, Dr David Nott, could give us, was to simply stop conducting in the middle of a piece. He would just stand there, arms by his side with his eyes closed, taking in the glorious music. It was his way of saying, "You've got this." And we all knew and felt what a special moment it was.

When I am not singing you will find me:
Behind my camera!
