I re-joined Local 802 to participate in more solo, chamber music and orchestral engagements in NYC. My principal instrument is clarinet, and my musical goal is to take my audiences on a voyage of classical and crossover music. I spent 18 years touring with the Grammy-nominated Imani Winds while doing other chamber music and solo work abroad. Music is important to me because it’s the language that communicates the most and across all cultural boundaries. My most favorite recent gig was with the American Composers Orchestra; they are a fabulous group of people and musicians!
