ABOUT

A long time musician, I am finding myself between groups and freelance projects. I am looking for a project that I can really sink my teeth into.

A bit more about myself; I started as a classically trained viola player at a young age and also decided to pick up any other instrument that I felt that I could master. Got my start at gigging playing in a church praise band for a few years. Following that, I have been in and out of jazz ensembles, funk bands, and some indie-alternative groups. I also have done a handful of freelance work with some Milwaukee theater and dance troupes as well.

I went to UW-Milwaukee where I studied Music Composition and Technology. So not only do I strive to be in bands focused on original content, I am recoding savvy as well!

Check out some of the compositions I have done on my page(s) :
