I started playing clarinet in the school band at age six. My father was a musician, and he thought that playing in the school band would help me overcome my extreme shyness. I remember my first music lesson. I really liked my teacher. He came to my house, and he helped me to care for my clarinet and make some sounds on it. I thought playing the clarinet was wonderful. Once in awhile my mom would have to urge me to practice, but I was so drawn to playing the clarinet from the start that I would practice a lot on my own. I was the youngest member of the grade school band, but my music lessons helped me to keep up with the older kids. I had found a niche, and my niche helped me open up to other students in school and make friends. I participated in band programs through middle ...

I believe music is a very special form of expression and is something I take seriously, yet also have fun with. I recently relocated to NYC. Prior to that, I have spent most of my life in Florida and Los Angeles. I went to high school and college (University of West Florida) in the Fort Walton Beach/Pensacola areas and excelled musically, where I was chosen to participate in honor bands, such as Florida's All-State Honor Band (at the high school and collegiate levels), All-South and have been placed in numerous other honor bands.
