Teaching since:

I am a student/freelance trumpet player in Cincinnati, OH. I am a North Dakota native, and obtained bachelor's degrees in Music and Civil Engineering from North Dakota State University in 2013. I then went on to Ohio University in Athens, OH, where I earned a Master's in Trumpet Performance. I am currently studying at the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati getting my Doctorate of Musical Arts.

I have been teaching private lessons since I was in high school, and have taught in all the different areas of the country I have lived. I love teaching students of all skill levels, and no matter where you are starting from, I can help you achieve your goals.

During all this time, I have remained an active freelance musician playing various church gigs in all the locations I have lived. I have also played for various musicals, operas, and orchestras. I was a finalist in the small ensemble division of the National Trumpet Competition in 2017, and am an active member of the International Trumpet Guild. When I am not playing the trumpet, I enjoy playing games with friends and spending time with my fur-baby, Tacocat.
