Ever since I began playing the trumpet in 4th-grade music has been at the center of my life. I grew up in Rockford, IL, and decided to make the big leap to the Pacific Northwest for college. I am currently a rising senior at Lewis & Clark College, majoring in euphonium performance. I have certainly enjoyed my time here thus far; Portland’s natural beauty and vibrant community have made me fall in love with the city. Early on in my college career, I began listening to All Classical and found it to be a great source for all things classical music. After a long day of class and practice, I enjoy hopping in my car and immediately tuning into All Classical for my drive home. I can count on hearing one of my favorite pieces or discovering something entirely new.
I have previously interned with the Rockford Symphony Orchestra in my hometown, where I gained valuable experience working with a non-profit arts organization. I am very excited to gain more experience with All Classical this summer and explore what radio has to offer. I look forward to working with such a passionate group of people, who love music just as much as I do.
In recent years, I have taken up the bass trombone and conducting as a way to expand my musical understanding and experience. In my free time, I play rugby, go for picnics, and visit art exhibitions.
I look forward to a fantastic summer with All Classical!
