I strive to instill both diligent practice habits and a deep love for music in the youth I work with. I am the brass instructor and ensemble director at Zumix, a nonprofit youth development music center.
I work both composing and arranging for commissioned horn sections, and producing experimental cassettes as a multi-instrumentalist.
