Hi! I'm Terri, born and raised in Rochester NY and the Adirondack Mountains, I became fascinated with the performing arts and Deaf culture at a young age. I learned sign language at the age of seven in Old Forge NY, while involved in a theatre program for many years where both sign language and voice were used in the productions. I was always enthralled with musicals and loved going to Broadway shows as a young girl. I fell in love with the magic of seeing live music at the age of fourteen after seeing the rock and roll band Phish . Having a love for music and sign language it was always a dream to combine these two passions. I graduated from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, in Rochester NY, with an AAS in American Sign Language/English Interpretation.
My beautiful son Toren Oak was born in 2014 and he has been the pure inspiration and motivation for me to follow my bliss. He has taught me that our wildest dreams can and do come true! The honor of providing equal access during concert experiences for the Deaf and hard of hearing fans and bringing music to visual life is my true passion. Music is for everyone!
