About Me

Hey! I am a new resident of the Kansas City area, having recently moved from the Chicagoland area. I received my Bachelor of Music from Western Illinois University, with an emphasis in Music Business and Marketing. Before taking the reigns of store manager here in Olathe, I was a proud team member of our Fox Valley location.

My musical career started when I picked up the cornet as a sixth grader. I went on to study trumpet in college as my principle instrument. In addition to the trumpet, I also play drums, piano, guitar, and I am a vocalist. I attended Marmion Academy for high school where I performed in the school band, choir, and military band. At Western Illinois University, I performed in the concert band as well as the steel band.

In addition to performing in academic-related music programs, I have a generous amount of experience playing drums live and recording with various bands, with genres ranging from hardcore and ska, to funk and experimental. Furthermore, I am the former sound manager for Westec Sound and Lighting, where I engineered live sound ranging from small events to big rock concerts.

After completing my college coursework, I became the business intern for Johnny K Productions, which is owned and operated by producer Johnny K, who produced a generous amount of platinum records.
