OPERAtion European Storm

Dear Friends,

Currently living and singing in Berlin, the production of Figaros Hochzeit I am performing is a great success.  It does not pay much, but I am having tons of fun doing it.  I have also been featured in a commercial playing on several international TV stations.

Since I am here, I would like to take advantage of my central location to train with many respected professionals in the industry and then audition for several major opera companies throughout Europe.  While I am able to cover my living expenses with what Figaro is paying me, I am currently unable to afford neither the training nor auditioning.

20€ for a pianist, 60€ for one night in a hotel, 120-200€ round-trip on the train, 60€-100€ for specialized training....it adds up quickly.  I will also need to make recordings for Youtube and which, of course, means more money.

This is where you come in.  I would like you to become an investor in my business.  Yes, I may be an artist, but I realize that I am actually running a business.  Your investment will help me realize my dream and the potential my wonderful voice teacher, who is now my guardian angel, saw in me twelve years ago.

I humbly ask for your help in my time of need.  Would you be able to give a friend $10, 20€, or even purchase a plane/train ticket?  Maybe you can help underwrite the recordings I need to advance my career.

If you believe in me, please make a donation towards my future and help me take the European opera world by storm.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
