Born in Rapid City, South Dakota, I started taking piano lessons at the age of 6. Since that time, my love for music has grown with each passing day.
I graduated from The Entertainment Career Connection in 2010 with a certification in Audio Engineering and Production. There I studied audio mixing, recording, production and mastering. I currently study music education at Denver Metropolitan University.
I am very active in the community volunteering my time as the Event Coordinator and Board of Directors for a non-profit organization called The Denver Creative Movement. In addition, I keep myself busy musically playing in my bands, Sleeping Giants, L.A.M.A. LIVE (Little Ambition Makes A lot), and The Free Electric Band.
I continue to follow my life-long passion for music by educating others. I believe that music lessons should be a fun and rewarding experience, and place a high value on learning how to use music in everyday life.
