One or two sentences that describe you as a person: I am Fundamentally Sound’s leading authority on just about everything “nerdy.”  Pokémon, Comic Books, Anime, Dungeon’s and Dragons and everything in between I am sure to have at least some experience in.

What was the first song you ever performed with Fundamentally Sound? Gimme Shelter at Fall callbacks, 2010.

Do you have any favorite recorded a cappella tracks? “Timshel” by the Tufts Beelzebubs

What was the first a cappella song you ever heard? “Prayer of the Children” by Kurt Bestor

What is your favorite part of college so far? The new experiences I get to have on a near daily occurance. In a close second comes the Band of Brothers I have found in Fundamentally Sound

What do you like doing in your free time? If I’m not working on my awesome course work, at my job, or rehearsing with the guys you can usually find me playing video games or watching anime with my special lady friend. Twice a week I can also be seen jumping between my Human-Werewolf Fighter or Dungeon Master Roles. All nerdy things aside I am a connoisseur of fine dining and Food Network shows such as Chopped.

What previous singing experience do you have? 6 years of high/middle school choir, 2 years in a vocal jazz group, I was part of one all male a cappella group and started another during my senior year, several musicals, Sunday school music teacher, and serenading people on State Street for money.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself: I was born on the kitchen floor of my house and got my name on the side of an ambulance because of it.

What is your claim to fame? (A single accomplishment that shows what a badass you are): I went toe to toe with 8 zombies in HVZ by myself and came out on top… Twice.

Give us a quick rundown of your average day: I start most days with a hearty breakfast of Peanut Butter Crunch or a Blueberry Bagel with Strawberry Cream Cheese. After a quick shower I rush off for my 20 minute drive to the Madison Media Institute. After several hours of class I might wind down with a game or two of MTG or D&D. Afterwards I’ll make the trek home and grab some dinner while getting caught up with the most recent episodes of Adventure Time or The Walking Dead. Then it’s off to FS to sing with the greatest bunch of guys I’ve ever met!
