Perhaps married with a whole bunch of (possibly redheaded) kids, living in New England...as for a career, my mind changes daily, but I want it to be something that builds community and betters people's lives. I would also really love to own a flower shop someday. Who doesn't love walking into a flower shop?
Favorite Cape Harmony Memory: At the very first CH auditions, after we had the final list for 2006, I turned to Melissa and said, "We have a group!!" In that moment, I realized that this group was becoming a reality. It was a very exciting feeling, and if I ever start to feel discouraged, I remind myself of how far we have come and what a feat it was to start this and get it going. It's kind of thrilling, it's and something I will take with me always.

But really, James Taylor, Ben Folds, and Eva Cassidy are always in there. And any a cappella arrangements that make me like songs that I didn't originally like.
Five Favorite Things About Summer:Wearing nothing, the happy state everyone is always in, taking long walks, being awake outside at 3 a.m., visits/love
Pet Peeves: Miscommunication in general
Where Do You See Yourself In Ten Years? I honestly have no idea. I really could be doing any number of things. But I'll be happy with whatever it is that I'm up to. Maybe teaching. Maybe performing. Maybe journalism. Maybe I'll randomly be in culinary school. You really never know.
Favorite Cape Harmony Memory: Going to the Hyannis Harbor with Rachel one day when we didn't have to work and sitting on rocks on the water talking about life and listening to great songs on her computer. Is that too cheesy? Also, for contrast, crouching behind a lectern to blow my nose in the middle of a show in Woods Hole when I was really sick. It was really awkward.
