Close to 20 years ago, I began my musical journey with piano lessons at the age of four. When I was 10, I picked up the trumpet for the first time and that continued throughout college. Along the way, I have performed in WGI competitions playing marimba, as well as having learned how to play french horn and steel pan drums in college to perform in different ensembles.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Commercial music from Florida State University with a focus in Audio engineering and film scoring. During my time at FSU, I have written, recorded, mixed and mastered different genres of projects, as well as arranging music for large concerts and ensembles at FSU. I have performed in a wide variety of ensembles such as University Symphonic Band, World Renowned Florida State Marching Chiefs, University Concert Band and many more.
I currently play piano, trumpet, guitar, and drums, as well as work on film scoring for documentaries and short films.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

My mom and dad. They have provided so much for me and my siblings over the years, that I have them to thank for for the life that I am living currently.
Anything Disney and hair products.
I had always dreamed about working at Pixar as an animator when I was growing up because I was fascinated with the different techniques and applications used to make a drawing come to life.
Excellent customer service, excellent product, excellent staff! I love that I can always reach a live person with questions. I always get individual treatment.

Absolutely amazed by the personal service on our order! It is obvious customer satisfaction is a priority. Your company would be the first place we would look for music related items. Great prices, great service and BTW, even the little touch of adding some candy made my kids very pleased! Thank you!

I have to say it's the most personal order I've ever made from the pre-ship phone call, to the email, and finally the candy in the box. Thanks! I don't think I could beat the customer service even in a local shop
