About Me

Music has always been my life. Music provide us with the ultimate form of self-expression and give us fulfillment, enrichment, beauty and peace, and represent, quite frankly, all that is best about mankind. I love the responsibility and challenge of taking a great musical composition and bringing it to life. Recreating the inspired thoughts of a composer in as true and honest a way as possible, is my goal. Being a performing artist is a huge responsibility and one that I don’t take lightly.
