‘Why we joined the union’
Volume 116, No. 12December, 2016
I joined Local 802 when I moved to New York to study at Juilliard. I have learned so much in my few years in New York. I absolutely love the networking opportunities the union provides. I have had the privilege of performing on SNL and the Late Show with David Letterman! My principal instrument is trumpet and my secondary instrument is drum set. I have had the privilege to understudy as a drummer on the Broadway musical “Memphis.” One of my goals is to work on a Broadway show as a performer. I would also love to show off my arranging and composition abilities. I am certain that Local 802 will help give me these opportunities.
