Background & Experience

I grew up in California and attended Eastman School of Music for a Bachelors in Horn Performance and Northwestern University for a Masters in Horn Performance. I have studied primarily with Gail Williams, Jon Boen, Peter Kurau, and Pete Nowlen. Currently, I work as the Site Manager at Sistema Ravinia Lawndale while freelancing and teaching on the side. I have 12 years of experience teaching in all settings: privately, chamber music, Zoom lessons, masterclasses, and sectionals.
