“Performing throughout the United States as a trumpeter, I always strive to use music as an expressive tool in each of the various settings in which I work. Whether in a trumpet section with critically acclaimed orchestras, or on stage during a solo recital, my goal is always the same; to inspire and entertain audiences with intriguing and captivating performances.”
