I started my lifelong love affair with a cappella music in high school. I was the first freshman in the B Sharps at Plainview -Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School and since then, over 7 more groups have sprouted up! By the time I started Choral Pleasure at SUNY Purchase, I already had 4 years of arranging and directing under my belt. I started engaging with the a cappella community at large through writing articles, interviews, and reviews for CASA. Through BetterACappella, groups of all levels and locations are now singing my arrangements, which helped me develop my style of arranging a tune based on what it needed and tailoring an orchestration to a specific group and setting afterwards. Emotional storytelling is also very important to me and I love seeing what other stories song lyrics can tell and what musical world that story lives in. I cannot wait to embark on a musical journey together!
