When did you start singing?

I’ve been singing since I was about five. I’ve been involved in music my whole life because of singing.

Do you write your own songs?

I’ve written a few songs, not as many as I’d like, mainly because since coming to college, I’m more involved with a capella and it takes up my time. I tend to write about a song a semester.

Who are your biggest influences?

Death Cab for Cutie. Phish. Modest Mouse. The Mars Volta.

Who have you been listening to lately?

A lot of Phish shows. Postal Service — I can listen to that album over and over…and do.

What are you involved with musically on campus?

I’m the musical director of Absolut A Capella. I’m also a member of Male Call. I was also the musical director of student-run shows, like
“Assassins” and “Charlie Brown.”

What’s your plan for the future?

I’d love to have a band, but mainly I’m looking to teach music. I’m hoping to pursue that in grad school.
