Growing up in Seaside, Oregon, there wasn't much of a classical music community that I was aware of. My first real exposure to the genre was when I was 12 years old, and my mom took me to see Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Astoria Music Festival. I looked up at the singers on that stage and knew, “this is what I want to be when I grow up”. I am currently finishing up my senior year at Portland State University with a degree in Vocal Performance. I am also a member of the Portland State Chamber Choir, and have participated in a few of PSU’s Opera productions.

My appreciation for classical music has only grown through my studies, and while my ultimate goal is to perform, I am looking forward to learning everything that All Classical can teach me about the broadcasting industry and how it has aided the classical music world. I can't believe I get to be surrounded by such a great group of people who are as passionate and enthusiastic about this music as I am, and I am so thankful for this opportunity!

Aside from my love of music, I enjoy being outside hiking, walking in the city, playing tennis, or going home for a while to play and surf at the beach. I love to travel, and I am a huge bookworm. My favorite place to be is curled up in a big chair with a warm blanket, a cup of coffee, a good book, and soft piano music playing in the background.
