I received my Master’s degree in 2007 from Indiana University School of Music where I studied with Mike Hatfield and Rick Seraphinoff. After finishing my degree, I furthered my studies with Denise Tryon of the Philadelphia orchestra. I perform regularly with several area orchestras, including Richmond, Maryland, Reading, and Allentown Symphonies, and serve as Principal Horn with the Williamsburg Symphony and Associate Principal with Annapolis Symphony.
I'm an avid chamber musician, performing regularly with The Georgetown Quintet and the Ars Nova Brass Quintet. Additionally, I perform with and help run ANCO, a self-conducted chamber orchestra based in Virginia. I'm also an experienced Natural Horn player.
I'm an active teacher with several extremely talented students. These students regularly receive spots in district and state bands/orchestras. I currently live in Alexandria, VA with my wife, Stacie, who plays Clarinet in the US Army Band "Pershings Own", and our two cats, Sunny and Gracie.
I'm available for weddings, church services, recording sessions, orchestras, and anything in between.
I also teach private lessons, sectionals, and masterclasses - in person or via Skype. My rates are very reasonable!
