I grew up around Denver, but decided to explore the world a bit and moved to California for my college education. I received my BA in Music Composition from Westmont College, and my Master of Arts in Teaching from the Longy School of Music in Los Angeles. After teaching for a few years in California, I finally returned to my home state of Colorado in 2021.
My primary instrument is the cello, but you can catch me singing, playing guitar, piano, ukulele, and any other instrument I can get my hands on! In my free time, I enjoy walks and hikes with my dog, tabletop and video games, and learning new things like rock climbing, martial arts, and cultural music traditions.
