What appeals to you most about joining Gotham Rock Choir?

I think there's a tremendous power in singing. It's always been pretty magical to me. If you think about it, singing is the very first thing we do in life: the moment after we're born, we make a sustained cry. That's singing. I love to work with singers of all experience levels and backgrounds. While I enjoy the "shorthand" aspect of working with experienced singers very much, I also really like working with inexperienced singers and watching them get better and better over time.

Have you ever been part of a choir before? If so, do you know what vocal part you sing? (It's okay if you don't)

Growing up, I was constantly a member of choirs, both community and academic. I'm a baritone, although I don't sing with GRC. Like many people, I stopped singing in choirs when I went to college. Like most university choirs, mine was very stuffy, serious and classically-oriented. It didn't appeal to me at all. One of the reasons I started GRC was to provide an alternative to those kinds of choirs and to bring a much-needed sense of "cool" to choral singing.

Do you play any musical instruments?

I play piano/keyboard, and I also do vocal arrangements.
