Welcome to! Here you will find all the info you need about me and my work. Please reach out!

August 2019 update

I have relocated from the Baltimore/Washington DC area to New York City! Very exciting to be embarking on this new chapter of my life. Also, keep an eye out for information about my new (bicoastal!) woodwind quintet, The Deep Tones.


2/6/18: Today I have some very good news--I have two new jobs! I have recently been hired at the Levine School in Washington DC (here).  I'll be teaching bassoon lessons, as well as coaching chamber music and participating in the faculty quintet. 

ALSO! I have just been hired as the new double reed instructor at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD.  I am so excited to start work at this historic HBCU and help train the next generation of black musicians!


8/11/17: I was googling myself and I found my blog from my time in Canada. I thought I'd post it here in case you have an interest in what life was like for me there.

7/21/17: The performance calendars for Incidental Chamber Players and Mind on Fire are being finalized, and soon I will have a whole slew of dates where you can come see me work with some fantastic musicians around Pittsburgh and Baltimore!

7/8/17: Happy to announce that I have accepted an offer to play with the Colour of Music Festival in Charleston South Carolina this coming October. The concert schedule will be announced in early August. Stay tuned!

7/7/17: I have decided to write short updates on my website. This is the first one! 



I'm currently accepting new students to my studio. At this time I am only teaching bassoon in Manhattan. For more information about rates/availability, please contact me
