I grew up in a very musical family and I've been singing for as long as I can remember. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of my family standing around the piano singing Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Rodgers & Hammerstein.

I’m also a lifelong nerd. I was one of those dorky middle school mathletes who went on to become a computer programmer. What I love most about writing code is that I’m constantly solving problems - a passion of mine that rivals my passion for singing.

In 2013, I decided to marry those passions. For years I’d been frustrated by a choir management system my community chorus was using. It was clunky and unintuitive, worked poorly on phones and tablets, and caused myself, my fellow chorus members, and our chorus administrators countless headaches and frustrations. In a moment of inspiration and empowerment, I decided that if I wanted to use something better, I needed to build it myself. Chorus Connection was born!

Now that you know a little about me, keep poking around the site, and if you’d like to see more, sign up for a free account. I can't wait to show you how Chorus Connection can make your life easier!
