In your own words, what is your ethnic identity? (for individuals)
I was born in the Bronx and raised in Queens by a Filipina mother and an Indian father.
Your Artistic Background/Mission
I am a classical singer (tenor). In addition to my work as a singer, I am a full-time voice teacher and choral conductor at the "fame" school - LaGuardia Arts HS in NYC.
My mission is to bring music in any way possible to the youth. Whether that is as a performer, teacher or conductor. I am a firm believer that the arts help shape an individual to his/her full potential as a human being and as a part of a community.
Your Creative Influences
I have been inspired by too many things to list, but here are a few:
Any genre of music from classical to popular including multi-cultural. Films, both independent and main-stream, avante-garde expression of artistry, linguistics, community, history, cultures, etc.
