I started playing trumpet when I was thirteen years old. I have been fascinated with the instrument since my first spark of inspiration from a trumpeter with 30 years of experience. I wanted to learn how to play like that someday, so I strived to be the best, and I have not stopped since. I became a Symphonic Band member in my sophomore year of High School, eventually making my way to First Trumpet. Later, I gained more experience by making the All-State Symphonic Band, eventually winning First Prize in a Scholarship Performance at Nyack College.
My biggest treasure has been the gift of music because it has given me great opportunities, like the unforgettable Jazz Tour in Italy. I now take my music skills not just locally but also internationally, I thank God for the gift he has given me for music.
I specialize in Jazz, Latin, and Classical music. Nothing makes me happier than satisfying others by sharing the power of self expression through music.
