When did you first become involved in a cappella? In what capacity?

I first became active in a cappella when I was a junior in high school. My music director at the time was meeting with a barbershop group and I heard him playing some music one day during our lunch. It was awesome to hear all of those voices come together. I went to my first rehearsal a couple weeks later and was hooked. I have been singing a cappella since that day.

When did you first become involved with CASA?

I fist became involved in CASA in December of 2010

What area do you cover as a CASA ambassador?

Washington State

What role do you play as a CASA ambassador and/or what role would you like to play?

Currently I am trying to get all Washington A Cappella groups updated in Acapedia, and keep the calendar of events up to date, but in the future I would like to be able to start doing more with the communities around the state.

What do you do for work and play?

I work in customer care for a major cell phone company, and my area of expertise is in corporate and government accounts. I am a BIG time SCUBA diver. When summer comes around and I am not at work you will probably find me under water.
