ABOUT

I studied music starting at the very young age of 4. I started with the piano and was taught music theory. During Elementary school I picked up the violin then moved towards the trumpet but left both of them and continued playing the piano. In high school I took electives in music to learn more and came back to the trumpet. I also attended Duquesne University for Music performance with and emphasis in jazz. I had the pleasure of recording with a few musicians outside of school during this time. After 2 years I left and started a career in business. I continue to play however not as much as I would like to. Especially with other musicians.
