After Graduating with my M.M in Contemporary Performance & Production (Voice) from Berklee Valencia this past July, I set out on an ambitious adventure to the Big Apple in order to pursue my true passion: Theatre. While I knew quickly I’d be missing Valencia, I also knew that if one wants to embark on a theatrical career, there’s no place to do so other than right here in New York City!

Before entering the Berklee College of Music Valencia campus in Fall 2015 and studying in their Music Production, Technology and Innovation program, I was a seminary student at Princeton Theological Seminary.

My first day at the 2016 Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition in Switzerland was quite an eventful one. It flew by pretty quickly and included a lot of travel logistics, but I was also able to rehearse with the house trio as well as meet and bond with my fellow vocal contestants. That afternoon, not far from the conference site, there were a few workshops led by famous artists, a highlight of which for me was meeting Patty Austin and singing with her.
It was a real treat taking the short trip from Valencia to Bunyol to witness the premiere of one of my overtures by the local Symphonic Band from the Conservatorio Profesional de Música San Rafael de Buñol. This was made possible through collaboration and internal competitions from within Berklee, in order to select the pieces to be played.
