    Interests and Hobbies Other Than ADC: Continuing to work on my upper soprano range as I am a countertenor (I love singing high notes!), hanging out with friends on the weekend, photography, and supporting the LGBT community when I can.???????
    Why I Sing With ADC: Singing is my personal connection that draws me closer to God and strengthens my faith. I was introduced to Handel’s Messiah as a youth when my dad gave me Elliott Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir’s recording of it for a Christmas gift. It was then I fell in love with Handel and choral music. My mom’s family is also musical. I was drawn to ADC by its high professional level and caliber. I continue to sing with them because I’m making new singing friends, as well as learning new choral music. Being the only male ADC soprano is also fun!
