I grew up in Elmhurst, near Chicago. I moved to Chicago a couple of years ago after completing my Bachelor of Music at Lawrence University. I love playing clarinet and singing, but what is most worthwhile to me is making music with other people. In my spare time I love making new vegan foods, learning new things, exploring Chicago, and taking way too many pictures.
I believe that creativity and challenge help our students get better every day. Challenging students to imagine creative solutions to their problems will prepare students to live and work in our constantly changing world, where creative solutions to big problems will be of utmost importance.
