I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland where I was encouraged to sing, play the piano and the flute. I grew up in a family where musical participation was expected of everyone, and family gatherings always ended in melodic singing with voices floating into four and five part harmonies.

At age twelve, I began directing choirs and playing the piano for church services with my mother. My mother and I, both singers and musicians, performed together at churches, civic events and education conferences throughout the east coast.
