Hello, dear music lover!
First of all, I must thank you so much for understanding the value of live music and the power it has to make life events more meaningful. It is thanks to people like -you- that people like -me- can continue to do what we love for a living and spread joy and celebration through our musical voices. I owe my life to it. Your support means the world to me!
Let me tell you more about myself. I originally hail from a small town in Southern California called Laguna Hills. I graduated with honors from the Cole Conservatory of Music in Long Beach, CA. After school, I moved to Santa Monica and freelanced for a few years for clients in Beverly Hills. I played with artists like Jason Mraz, I See Stars, and Maisy Kay. I have played for media powerhouses like Hallmark Channel and FX, and video games like Riot Games, League of Legends. I learned quickly that I wasn't satisfied with my classical training--that true musicianship requires more. I have recently moved to Boston, MA to pursue that passion to attend the internationally acclaimed Berklee College of Music with a substantial scholarship. Since enrolling at Berklee I have played with the Trans-Siberian orchestra on their West Coast tour and Eminem at Boston Calling Music Festival.
As for my professional experience, I began work at age 14 aided by my mentors, fell in love, and have been a freelance musician ever since. The freelancing scene is different from the conservatory, you see, because people want to hear music that they remember, music that reminds them of LIFE, of their most precious memories. I didn't grow up in the conservatory vacuum either; I spent years exploring all of the music our culture introduced to my ears, and I love that music, too. I strive to be a flexible, adaptable musician, a chameleon who can perform any style with grace (#lifegoals). I perform pop, blues, jazz, classical, hip hop, and more and I continue to push myself to improve my global musicianship. This is all to say: I can perform any special request my lovely clients request, and I aim to make every performance personal.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, I look forward to working with you to create fantastic memories!
A note to booked CA clients: Your bookings will still be fulfilled, I travel from Boston to LA and make sure my bookings reflect where I will be on that particular day.
