For around 15 years, I have made a career of performing throughout the United States and Europe. I have performed a vast array of characters such as Carmen (Carmen), Charlotte (Werther), Frugola (Il Tabarro), Flora (La Traviata), Suzuki (Madama Butterfly), Mama Lucia (Cavalleria Rusticana), Gertrude (Romeo et Juliette), Rosette (Manon), Inez (Il Trovatore), Pinellino (Gianni Schicchi) and Giovanna (Rigoletto). In 2014, I originated the role of Soldier’s Mother in the world premiere production of Theo Popov’s three-character opera, “Once Upon the Wind.” I have also performed as a guest solo artist in Switzerland, England, Ireland, Wales, and Canada. During my time in Switzerland, I earned a Zertifikat in American Music specializing in American Spirituals. I was recently named a national semi-finalist for the New York Lyric Opera Vocal Competition, and finished work on the prize-winning independent film “Crackers” starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Brenda Vaccarro, Dan Hedaya, and Anthony Laciura. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Long Island University in 2005 and my Master’s Degree from Westminster Choir College in 2008. There, I studied with celebrated Soprano, Sharon Sweet, and coached with Daniel Beckwith and JJ Penna. During this time, I won 2nd place in the Hilliard Rankel Vocal Competition. I currently study with the MET’s and HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” star, Anthony Laciura.
