About Me

I began studying guitar in 2003, and have been infatuated with the instrument ever since. I started performing in a rock band when I was 14 and went on to study music theory throughout high school. In 2010 I started my undergraduate studies in music education at Hartwick College. Ultimately, I switched my major to business administration with a minor in music. In 2011 I joined Alpha Delta Omega fraternity, which was not only the oldest fraternity in the city of Oneonta but also home to many musicians and artists from the college.

My interests led me to many musical ventures. Classical guitar was my instrument of choice, but I played drums in Hartwick's jazz combo throughout college. For two years I also played guitar, pitched percussion, and drums in our Rock Orchestra. I also worked as a local DJ from my sophomore to my senior year. While I continued to foster my passion for music, I went far beyond the world of musical academia. My business administration studies led me to live in Italy for a month. There, I studied global marketing across Rome, Florence, Venice, Genoa, Bologna, & Milan. I also took a semester long internship with Planned Parenthood in Oneonta. For work, I studied professional audio and operated as a sound tech for a variety of campus performances. In-between tech work, I consulted prospective students with our admissions office.

Since earning my degree in 2014, I have pursued my love for live music both as a concert-goer and a performer. I began applying my knowledge of music and business as an employee of Music & Arts in January of 2016. I'm proud to have joined a company that upholds integrity in the music business and strives to aid the journey of all musicians, young and old!
