Music drives me. This Hunter S. Thompson quote captures how I experience it: “Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel.” I'm on a mission to make things happen through music.
From performing at National Sawdust to St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and creating successful flute events and seminars at universities, I have partnered with presenters and schools to program concerts and design experiences that help audiences and musicians discover and access the full range of human emotions to expand our awareness of music as an inclusive, unifying experience. This exploration of the human condition through music is why I am committed to my playing and teaching.
“I love seeing how passionate you are when you perform, you go for it! Your fearlessness and dedication to the music is so inspirational. Thank you so much for teaching the importance of having fun when performing.”
“A fantastic performer. A wondrous teacher. And an energetic and imaginative personality. . .”
" . . . [I] admire the inspiration you bring to your work, your artistry and musicianship, and the integrity that infuses all you do." - Dr. Kathryn Steely, Baylor University
