I joined Local 802 because I had the amazingly fortunate opportunity to sub on the Broadway show “Dear Evan Hansen.” I love to make music that inspires people as well as incites progress and radical change for social justice through music and music education. Music is important to me because it is a vehicle that can motivate and inspire people to think critically and make the world a better place. My principal instrument is guitar. I’m trained in jazz and classical but grew up with rock and world styles like Greek music. I also dabble with the laouto and have some fluidity with piano, bass and drums.
