I'm a passionate, patient, and driven instructor who loves working with students of all ages and sharing my love of all styles of music. In 2007, I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. Performing all over the world has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I've had the opportunity to play in Ireland, Canada, and nationally throughout the United States. As alternative styles are a huge passion of mine, I have gone on to win several fiddle awards such as the Illinois State Fair Fiddle Contest. Currently, I am performing and touring with Irish rock band, Blaggards.
