Christian music is my passion. I play electric & acoustic piano, Hammond & Baldwin organ, & I typically perform in the Alto vocal-range, but successfully teach vocal music in all voice-ranges to adults & children, directing the choirs of 2 Baptist churches and leading congregational singing in the Worship experience. I work in the field of Online Marketing, and yes, I'm making money with it! I love to travel, I love to dance, I enjoy all types of music & I love to meet & interact with people & animals of all kinds.
