Career Highlights

Major Taylor Chorale Tours: Anchorage Alaska, 2022, Cuenca, Ecuador, 2023


I returned to Taylor as a faculty member because singing in the Taylor Chorale changed my life as a musician and a Christian. It gave me passion for musical community, worship through rehearsal and performance, and using music to spread peace, love, and beauty. I am grateful for the calling to continue the legacy of music and service at Taylor


I enjoy spending time with my two sons, Noah and Lewis: playing with cars, watching cartoons, hiding and seeking. I love to read fiction, memoirs, poetry, and essays–especially writing by Wendell Berry.
