I started playing piano at age 4, and moved into jazz at age 7. Working with Juliet Green and her Panache vocal jazz groups, I collected a number of student Downbeat Awards by the time I was 13. I've played at a number of jazz festivals on the west coast, from Monterey to Reno. I was in Grammy Camp LA in 2016 and 2017. I love performing, playing music and composing.
Sondheim. Miranda. Webber. Miles. Duke. Monk. Coltrane. Ahmad Jamal. Ed Sheeran. Taylor Eigsti. Larry Dunlap. Every beautiful piece of music that I hear and can learn from.
I'd love to write an amazing musical - and perform in it (yes, I'm more than a little inspired by Lin-Manuel Miranda!) I'm hoping to get into a Film and TV scoring program in college as that's my long term goal. I'd also really like to collaborate with others and get my music out there!
