Music is to the soul what words are to the mind.

About Me

      As a vioilnist for over fifteen years. I truly love music. I started my musical journey in fifth grade, playing in my elementary school's orchestra. Once I reached high school I joined the Fox Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra and played with them all the way up to my freshman year of college.

    After I left the FVYSO I ventured out to California to pursue a music career. I worked mostly on studio sessions for other bands and my own private music projects, performing live shows monthly. Now, when I'm not working at the store, I am working as a freelance violinst in the Chicagoland area.

  I began working at Music and Arts in the summer of 2016. I bounced around a few M&A locations in the Nashville area until returning back to the Fox Valley store in late 2018. I enjoy being surrounded by musicians. Nothing is better than getting to talk about music and instruments all day, every day.

My favorite part of working at M&A is having the opportunity to help start someone on their own musical journey. I am always excited to help find the right size orchestral instrument for our beginners.
