Outside of academia, I enjoy the making of, and listening to, music in all its forms and variations. I worked with the Chelsea Music Festival in New York City under the artistic leadership of Ken-David and Melinda Lee Masur, and volunteered as chair of the Music Committee at a local Fellowship where, among other things, I helped organize three concert series. I am trained in ballroom and jazz dance and have received piano, saxophone, and violin instruction. I love playing European team handball and volleyball. I was part of the Composition Program at Yamaha and completed the teacher’s education program at Kindermusik International. I won the Anastacia Idol Singing Competition in Stuttgart (Germany) in 2004, which gave me the chance to sing in front of 15,000 people next to singer Anastacia, and in 2007, I sang the lead vocal role in a production of High School Musical in my hometown. I have performed with various jazz bands and choirs and sang the American National Anthem at local sports events.
