Hey there!

I'm Kelli, AKA The Opera Geek! I'm a professional opera singer, freelance voiceover artist, & aria-slinging mercenary bard for hire! I've been a gamer & geek my entire life, and I'm super happy I've finally found a way to integrate my musical performances & my geekery!

You may know me from my shenanigans on Twitter, or maybe you've seen me on The Greyhawk Channel's Path of the Planes, or on WebDM's Unearthly Twilights (part of Grant Ellis' Across the Actuality Invisible Sun triptych). I also appear in one-shots frequently on many other channels - usually, surprise, as a bard.

My professional opera roles include The Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute), Musetta (La Boheme), Adele (Die Fledermaus), Anna (The Merry Widow), & the District Attorney (FIVE), among many concert performances & musical theatre roles. I would add, "fantastic singer of heavy metal in the car' to this resume, but my husband has expressly forbidden me from said activity.


Why a Patreon?

As many people know, trying to create a career in the arts is not easy. Like most of my artistic colleagues, I hold a full time day job while I sing professionally, as well as take on freelance gigs doing recordings, voiceovers, etc. I love creating my geekier content as well - D&D/TTRPG and gaming are not just great outlets & beloved interests, but also a really interesting way to flex my creative & musical performance skills!

That is where Patreon comes in. I love creating geeky content & streaming - but I also love paying my bills, especially those associated with opera/music performance as well as streaming! Lessons, coachings, transportation to/from rehearsals & auditions, streaming equipment, music - these are all expenses associated with being The Opera Geek. Patreon offers a way for me to create, make sure people have access to the goofy, geeky fun & the happiness it can bring, yet also allows for those who wish to support my artistic career & endeavors the chance to do so.
