Biography

I am a composer, arranger, guitarist and private instructor for guitar, piano, theory and composition. I received my B.A. from UCLA and 2 M.M. degrees from the S.F. Conservatory of Music in Composition (2017) with David Garner and Guitar Performance (2019) with David Tanenbaum. I spent the summer of 2014 & 2015 studying in Paris at La Schola Cantorum with David Conte and Michel Merlet.

My compositions are greatly influenced by folk music of North and South America, choral music traditions of Russia and Eastern Europe, as well as the harmonic and tone sensitivity of the French masters I picked up while in Paris.

Although I primarily perform "classical" guitar, I am well versed in teaching vastly different styles and always accommodate the student's taste and needs very carefully.

My passion for teaching, composing and performing continue to inspire new musical opportunities everyday.
