Why did you join HMC?

I joined HMCKC in January 2007 to find my gay community as I was starting to come out. My Chorus Buddy was Norman Gray, and I was his shadow that entire concert. My husband Joe and I left Kansas City in 2014 to live in Los Angeles for five years, but we moved back to KC in 2019, and I rejoined the Chorus. We live in Lenexa with our corgi, Sadie.

What is a song that makes you happy?

That’s a hard one! Celebration by Kool and the Gang always gets me to smile.
