Moo, moo, moo, moo, moo!
I am thrilled to be typing my first blog! It took some time to convince my Opera Columbus co-workers that I was Web-worthy. But, thanks to Carl (I love you Carl!), Opera Cleveland's Opera Chicken, and some conversations at the Opera America conference in June, here I am.
(Even before I was officially hired, they put me to work. Here I am passing out programs at our Summer Camp performance.)
Let me tell you a little bit about life before Opera Columbus hired their newest, and most talented, staff member. I grew up on a farm just outside Columbus and mooved to the big city for college. After graduating from The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!) I worked a few odd jobs (waitressing, temping, filing and even dabbled in real estate). During that time I got to experience a lot of the amazing things Columbus has to offer, *ahem* like Opera Columbus. But, during the same time I kept hearing people call my beloved city a *gasp* cowtown.
So when I heard Opera Columbus was looking for someone fabulous to write their blog about how awesome Opera Columbus, and Columbus in general, is I jumped on the chance.
Honey, let me tell you something. I am one cool, opera-loving, Columbus-adoring, cow. I am here to take back the cow in cowtown!
