Current and/or Former Creative Projects:
*DJing once a month in the Los Angeles area. I improvise/play the lead vocal line on sax while DJing
*Folk band project entitled Quail Hollow with 3 other musicians comprised of saxophone, guitar, 2 vocalists and banjo (we rehearse once a week)
*My ultimate goal is to start my own music agency out here, and I plan on continuing to perform locally in an effort to solicit new talent
Advice for Current Students: Be conscious of continuing to develop yourself both personally and professionally. Work your ass off. Periodically assess.

Anything else you want to add regarding your current life? Despite not being exclusively in music anymore, and while I’m far from achieving my professional goals, my time at Hartt with you shaped me into the person I am today. Thank you Carrie.
