I grew up in Houston, Texas and began playing trombone in 6th grade and never looked back. I have two degrees in music from the Manhattan School of Music and the Juilliard School. After I completed my masters I was invited to play with the Finnish Radio Symphony in the beautiful city of Helsinki, Finland for a season where I had the opportunity to join them on a European tour and Japan tour ( lots of Sushi and Wienerschnitzel!)
I am currently a member of Ensemble Connect at Carnegie Hall which is a two-year fellowship program "for the finest young professional classical musicians in the United States that combines musical excellence with teaching, community engagement, advocacy, entrepreneurship, and leadership."
I have taught over 60 private students from beginners to adults. I taught for the Harmony Program of New York for two years, and while I was at Juilliard I was the Morse and Music Advancement Program trombone teaching fellow.
But most of all I enjoy expressing myself through my instrument, having fun performing with friends for all sorts of audiences, and exploring new pieces of music.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Ensemble Connect—formerly known as Ensemble ACJW—is a two-year fellowship program for the finest young professional classical musicians in the United States that prepares them for careers that combine musical excellence with teaching, community engagement, advocacy, entrepreneurship, and leadership. It offers top-quality performance opportunities, intensive professional development, and the opportunity to partner with a New York City public school throughout the fellowship.+ Read More
