I am a double bass player with the San Diego Symphony and have previously performed with the National Symphony and the New World Symphony in Miami Beach. A native of Houston, I’ve received both a Bachelors and Masters of Music Performance in an Honors 5-year degree program at Rice University. Most recently I’ve been appointed the Director of Community Engagement for Art of Élan.   Beyond the symphony, I also regularly perform with Art of Élan, Camarada, San Diego New Music, Carlsbad Music Festival, Camera Lucida, Luscious Noise, and other solo bass recitals.

“Proof that Bassists can be just as nimble and expressive as cellists.”

Currently, I am the bass instructor for the Mira Mesa High School Orchestra and teach beginners through advanced bass students;  I also maintain a private teaching studio providing lessons to students in the greater San Diego area. Previously I’ve taught at Rancho Bernardo High School as well as being a Studio Artist Teacher at the San Diego State University at the School of Music and Dance. In other artistic endeavors, I enjoy collaborating and creating multimedia experiences combining performers, projected images, and amplified sound.
