A place for me to share my experiences through my route as a musician.This blog includes my perspectives on dealing with performance anxiety, teaching, and actively choosing my own path.


This video project is where I like to get silly. My efforts to make my daily life as an oboist more relatable. Hoping it will spread the reality of making reeds along with the accessibility of classical music.


A huge part of myself as a musician is the importance of connecting with a broader audience and making classical music accessible to everyone. This is where I lump in all the projects and collaborations I have done in this effort. This includes interactive and educational recitals to pop up performances in public spaces.
