I am originally from the Great State of Texas and a proud alumni of Duncanville HS band, directed by Tom Shine (retired). My earliest training was on classical piano, followed by classical clarinet (State Solo & Ensemble, All-Region) and contrabass clarinet (All-Region).

I addition to various orchestral, chamber, small combo, studio and other work, I am also a former music teacher with Orff-Schulwerk Level 1 certification from Mills College. I taught private lessons on piano and clarinet, and General Music K-4 in the San Rafael Public School system.

My favorite clarinet repertoire includes Schumann, Brahms, Weber, Debussy, Saint-SaŽns, Milhaud. I am an active player on sax for several local bands, playing rock, blues, latin jazz, salsa, and pop covers and original music. In addition, I studied flute with Dr. Carmen Lemoine from Eastman School of Music.
