I've been singing most of my life, but I had my first deep dive into a cappella with Shir Appeal, Tufts’ mixed gendered Jewish a cappella group. As Associate Director, I served as an in-house coach and mentored individual members in soloing, arranging, and vocal percussion. I sung with the group for four years and still coach and arrange for them as an alum. I also minored in music and sang in Tufts Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, and Opera Ensemble.
During my junior year at Tufts, I started branching out into barbershop music and have since been a member of numerous quartets and choruses. I am currently the tenor of Greenlight, the 2018 Northeastern District Quartet Champions, and the lead section leader and in-house singing coach of Vocal Revolution, the eight-time consecutive Northeastern District Chorus Champions.
I'm a fan of pretty much every major form of a cappella music, but I'm definitely a sucker for vocal jazz. Barbershop has become my favorite to sing because of its accessibility, inclusivity, and because those who sing it are often up to sing pretty much anytime, anywhere, anything.
When not working in software engineering or on music, I can probably be found bouldering, playing the new Smash Bros. game, and rehearsing my dad jokes.
