"If there is anyone here whom I have not insulted, I beg his pardon." -Johannes Brahms
I began my studies on piano at an early age but switched my focus to clarinet when I started band. Although I harboured longtime aspirations to go to school for engineering after high school, I chose instead to pursue music at the last moment. I attended the Hayes School of Music at Appalachian State University, and earned my BM in performance in 2012. Today, I perform occasionally with the Western Piedmont Symphony and enjoy teaching privately in my free time. My career goal is to win an audition with one of the premiere service bands in Washington D.C. My primary instructors are Michael Cyzewski, of the North Carolina Symphony, and Dr. Douglas Miller, professor of clarinet at App State.
My interests include practicing, reading, hunting, fishing, playing basketball, raising chickens, helping out on the farm, and playing cornhole.
