Initially, performing as a soloist was a pretty big stressor for me! As I worked through my undergraduate degree, I grew to love solo performance just as much as I love ensemble performance thanks to the encouragement and support of spectacular mentors and peers. Nowadays, I see performance as both a creative outlet and welcome challenge. I still experience a bit of performance anxiety, but the feeling of presenting well-prepared music to an audience far outweighs the trepidation!

     I currently hold three degrees in saxophone performance: the Performer's Certificate (SBU '19), MM in Saxophone Performance (MSU '21), and DMA in Saxophone Performance (UNT '24).


I greatly enjoy performing with others, especially in ensemble settings. My ensemble experiences include saxophone duets, quartets, and sextets as well as mixed chamber ensembles, big bands, and wind bands. Some of my fondest musical memories are attached to these various ensembles! Collaborating with groups of talented musicians is incredibly fulfilling and brings me great joy.

     I am honored to say that I am an alumnus of the premier wind bands at all three universities I have attended: the SBU Wind Symphony, MSU Wind Ensemble, and UNT Wind Symphony. I have also had the pleasure of performing with the top jazz ensembles at SBU and MSU.
