I'm an Oakland, California native and have abundant performance experience, including Opera, Spirituals, Choral, Barbershop, Jazz, Blues, Renaissance/Baroque, and Hip-hop.
In 2005, I was selected to participate in a summer program to study opera in Germany with renowned tenor Dr. Henry Price III. I have performed with the San Francisco Opera chorus since 2008. I have performed roles with Livermore Valley Opera, Walnut Creek Festival Opera, Berkeley Chamber Opera, San Francisco Parlor Opera, Berkeley Opera, Virago Opera, Island City Opera, and Berkeley Chamber Opera.
I was thrilled to be a finalist in the James Toland Vocal Arts competition and the East Bay Opera League vocal scholarship program. I have also produced, directed, and provided vocals and vocal percussions for the local rap/hip-hop group Laced Out Crew.
