I am a teacher, performer, composer, arranger, engineer, and so much more. My love of music began when I started taking lessons at age 5 and continued through a Bachelor's Degree in Piano and Music Technology. I have taken private lessons from incredible musicians, become proficient in many styles including jazz, rock, blues, soul, classical, and more. I have performed throughout the US with various groups and recently recorded an album of my original music. I have loved learning about arranging and music technology, picking up new hobbies and instruments, and bringing others with me along the way.
