Music flows through me like blood in my veins. Whether it be jazz, rock, metal, or more, I enjoy, perform, and write in a multitude of genres.
I have been ambitious in writing and performing my whole life. In my early years, I studied classical piano in the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM). Through those RCM studies, I entered my compositions in national and state songwriting contests and won Second Place in Canada Music Week as well as Third Place in the Composers Today program hosted by the Music Teachers’ Association of California. I attended university for music, immersing my life in my music passion. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Jazz Studies (Vancouver Island University) and went on to achieve my Master’s of Fine Arts in Music (California Institute of the Arts).
I love teaching all ages. My instruments are guitar, piano, voice, and electric bass. I can also help you with home recording and song composition.
