General information:
There are two things I am good at in life- network engineering and the clarinet! I do not have any music degrees, but I do take my playing very seriously and work hard to maintain a professional level of ability. I further my education through practice, conferences, research, and instruction from respected sources. I try to program recitals every 2-3 years. In the past, I have been known as somewhat of a contemporary music specialist; in my future recitals I plan to return to the core literature of which I've studied but never performed. I recently moved to San Antonio and I'm actively looking for musical opportunities in the area. I am also considering a recording project in the near future.
