I have been obsessed with everything music since I first heard The Beatles as a very young child. Since then, music has been an inescapable passion in my life that has driven me to many exciting experiences and has helped me travel and see the world. Since graduating from UNCC, I have been performing music professionally for the last 10 years and have been fortunate enough to have been a part of many amazing productions ranging from Broadway-style theatre work to contemporary, avant-garde performance art.
I began teaching music lessons in college as a way to pay for my studies; however, I quickly realized that teaching music was something that I was just as passionate about as playing music itself. Seeing youth - the future of the world - making strong, personal connections with all of the great art and music out there is truly inspiring and humbly reminds me of why I became an artist to begin with. I chose to teach at BISC because of our unique, global approach to learning and because of the passion we have in our performing arts concentrations. Art and music are not just afterthoughts- they are integrated throughout the curriculum. This passion is what propelled me to join the amazing BISC team!
