Born and raised for 9 years in VA. Moved to NY when my dad changed jobs. I have been in love with music since birth... Or was it before... Can't remember. Ask my parents! They've told great stories of things I used to do pertaining to music. I am now a passionate singer and a striving-to-be-accomplished pianist and a cellist and guitarist in training. If you would like to know anything else about me, please feel free to ask! :)
Music (listening to it, playing it, and singing it), writing (lyrics, stories, and blogs), reading (anything really), sports (playing and watching), and making people laugh (and that includes everyone).
Ummm.... Well there's this amazing 10-man a Capella group.... I think they're called Straight No Chaser... :P Hehe! I also like The Dave Matthews Band, The Script, The Fray, Pentatonix, and Another Round.
