I seek to present engaging and entertaining interpretations of each piece. I enjoy performing music ranging from Bach to Takemitsu to modern day singer-songwriter lullabies.

 

As an orchestral flutist, I've performed with the Pittsburgh Opera, National Repertory Orchestra, Lakes Area Music Festival, Akron Symphony, Westmoreland Symphony, and Johnstown Symphony.

 

My solo and chamber performance experience include a recital onstage at Carnegie Hall, a solo recital series in Boulder, Colorado, and performing as a Finalist at the National Flute Convention Young Artist Competition in 2023, receiving third prize and the Paul Taub Best Performance of a Newly Commissioned Work. 

 

Passionate about music by living composers, I have premiered new works through the Pendulum New Music Series in Boulder and during my time at Carnegie Mellon University.

 

Now based in Pittsburgh, PA, I gig with multiple group including the Pittsburgh Opera, Westmoreland Symphony, Erie Philharmonic, Lullaby Project Pittsburgh, and Musicians with a Mission.

"We don't see the destination. Just an idea in the distance. The path is unclear and chaotic and our journey is full of stumbling, hesitation, doubt. Yet if we strive forward, we learn the chaos can show us our way. And we find each other as we move ever toward the vanishing point."
