Meet The Author

Residing with my wonderful, supportive family in the New York metro region, I have always enjoyed hearing and telling a good story (and don’t even get me started telling jokes!) This website has provided a new outlet for sharing, showing vulnerability, and encouraging others to do the same. A musician, educator, and arts administrator by trade, I have found that memorable human interactions are precipitated by common AND disparate experiences.

Through employment and my studies, I have lived in New York, Texas, Connecticut, Virginia, and London, England.

As a trumpeter, I have performed throughout the United States and abroad in solo, orchestral, wind ensemble, and chamber music settings. In addition to numerous ceremonial performances, selected venues have included New York’s Lincoln Center, the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, The University of Vienna (Austria), and in London at The Chelsea Arts Club, St. John’s Smith Square, and The American Church in London.
