My name is Xochitl (nickname Xoxi), pronounced Sohsee. I am a researcher, educator and patient advocate. I am passionate about the human voice, not only in the context of singing, but also in the context of how it enables our humanity. I'm interested in how technology enables “speech and action,” two qualities that, according to philosopher Hannah Arendt, define our humanness. The capability of the voice to empower, to bring forth self-determination and to develop into action is an important topic in my work, especially in the contexts of identity and leadership. I'm currently working on a doctoral degree at Lesley University, Cambridge Massachusetts, where I'm working on an Individually Designed Specialization on Educational Evaluation and Research. I am also continuing my work on vocal pedagogy and performing songs, which stem back from my studies at The Longy School of Music of Bard College where I completed my undergraduate and Masters degrees in music and vocal performance.
