I am a professional trumpet player with experience in a wide range of genres. Although classically trained, I have also performed and recorded with pop, rock, jazz, and mariachi groups.

After winning first place in the 2012 National Trumpet Competition, I pursued a degree in trumpet performance at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music. In the realm of classical music, I have performed with the Houston Symphony Orchestra and the Maryland Lyric Opera. I have also played with pop artists like Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, and have recorded with D.C. based rock/reggae/ska band Dale and the ZDubs.

I am looking forward to helping you achieve whatever goals you have!
