I'm a professional musician, educator, and arts administrator. I have Bachelor's degree in Music Performance and a Masters degree in Arts Administration, both from Florida State University.
As a musician, I play as a soloist and with chamber ensembles in the Bay Area. I've performed in concert halls and music festivals throughout the United States and Europe, and my recordings have been featured on NPR's Performance Today. As an educator and clinician, I've held residencies and given masterclasses Universities and music schools around the country including Northern Arizona University, SUNY Fredonia, Florida State University, Sacramento State University, Colorado State University, and others. I'm also a co-founder of the Mana Quartet Saxophone Institute ; a national saxophone workshop for musicians all over the country!
My personally drawn to classical/contemporary music but I think that solid fundamentals and having a command of the instrument is essential no matter what style you're playing. I look forward to working with you!
