I love composing and performing music, especially choral music. I'm a conductor and high school music teacher. I love languages and speak Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French and German. I love being a "world citizen" and making new friends from any country. I love eating tasty, healthy food. I am serious and hard-working when it's time, but I also love taking a break and being with close friends—especially if it involves a beach or being somewhere beautiful. I love working with youth. I care about people and am ever striving to become more charitable and wise.
