Born: October 7, 1983 Primary Instrument: Sax, alto
I am currently a Seattle based Saxophonist. Growing up in Portland, OR, I began my musical training in jazz under the tutelage of Ben and Michelle Medler, founders of the Portland Youth Jazz Orchestra. I left my hometown to attend Northern Arizona University. While at NAU, I began to develop my classical performance. In 2006, I was named winner of the Northern Arizona University Concerto Competition. After graduation I returned to the Northwest to attend graduate school at University of Washington. Since receiving my Masters, I have been actively performing in and around Seattle, WA.
