Where are you from?

I am from San Diego, CA

When did you start playing and why did you pick your instrument?

I started playing when I was in 6th grade. It was really my middle school music teacher who asked me if I wanted to try switching from saxophone to French horn because there were too many saxes. I said, sure! why not!?

What has been your experience working with VCE?

I have had such a wonderful expereience with VCE. I’ve been such a classical diehard for such a long time and it is so nice to play new pieces of music, some even by our local composers and friends! We all learn and grow together and I think that’s what makes this group super special. We are willing to take risks and put in the work. In the end, we have beautiful music that we have made together.

What makes VCE different than other groups you have worked with?

I feel like I can take more risks with VCE, in regards to my playing. We all have different backgrounds which makes input during rehearsals wonderful. Everyone is so easy to work with and I could play with this fantastic group of people forever!
