What year did you join the orchestra?
How long have you been playing music?
How did you pick your instrument?
I grew up in a musical family. My mom is a bassoonist and my brother was a percussionist. My dad was a trombonist and he had multiple trombones sitting around the house. I started on one of his trombones.
I’m the Director of Operations and Artistic Planning for the Reno Chamber Orchestra.
When you’re not playing with the Reno Phil, what would we most likely see you doing in your free time?
I’m a big fan of cinema and I’m always trying to catch up on critically acclaimed films.
What genre of music are you most excited to play?
I get most excited about playing new music from composers of today. Playing a world or American premiere of a piece is incredibly exciting.
