Hometown: Orwell, NY
Favorite kind of music other than opera: Progressive rock and metal most recently, but I have long liked other genres such as jazz, and classic rock.
Favorite subject in school: Science—especially chemistry.
First inspiration to become a singer: In middle and high school I sang a lot of musical theater, and some pop and gospel. But in college I was exposed to a lot of opera and I was just fascinated by the incredible sound that a human voice could make without any amplification or technology to aid it. I decided I had to explore that and I became hooked.
Favorite zoo animal: Ocelot
Lyric debut: Jake/ Second Nature
