Upper School Creative Arts

Instrumental Music Teacher and Department Chair


Born and raised in Los Angeles, my early formal music training took place at the Colburn School of Performing Arts. Being in the middle of L.A. exposed me to many musical genres and I have always been fascinated by the unique offerings of each. I spent my undergraduate years exploring and studying multiple genres through analysis, composition, and performance. The process of deepening one’s understanding of music through various means is fascinating and I am passionate about sharing it with students of all ages.  

When not at work you will most likely find me hanging around a coffee shop, taco truck, or in a garage working on vintage cars.
