As I begin my seventh year of teaching at Ohio State University, I am honored to share that I have been appointed as Assistant Professor of Practice. In addition to my responsibilities with the saxophone studio, I am also humbled to join the composition faculty as well. As I reflect upon the many musical experiences and people that have contributed to making my time at OSU so wonderful, I am especially grateful for the relationships that have enriched my life through a mutual love and passion for the arts and arts education. Thank you to all of my students, colleagues, and mentors who inspire me each day to pursue my craft with integrity, humility, sincerity, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. Excited for the future!!!
