I bring power and experience to my orchestral playing. I pride myself in a big sound that will carry across an orchestra. With over 15 years of orchestral performance experience I am comfortable and confident in any orchestral setting. Flexibility is my goal in every situation and I constantly strive for further musical communication with both my instrumental and conduction colleagues.
I began performing with orchestras at the age of 13, and since then orchestral performance has been an essential and vibrant part of my life. Growing up in Williamsburg Virginia I performed with ensembles such as the William and Mary College Orchestra, Christopher Newport University Orchestra, Bay Youth Orchestra, York River Symphony Orchestra and others.
While attending Florida State University as well as playing with 7 school ensembles I served as principal harpist for the Valdosta Symphony Orchestra, and as a guest artist with the Albany Symphony Orchestra. My time at Eastman was some of the most orchestrally intense and exciting years of my life! I had the opportunity to perform some of the most challenging repertoire with the schools multiple ensembles while also performing as principal harpist with the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, and as a visiting artist with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
Since moving to Miami I have performed with ensembles throughout Florida, but perform most regularly as the Guest Principal harpist of the Miami Symphony Orchestra, and as a guest artist with the Florida Lakes Symphony Orchestra. Other ensembles I have performed with include the Florida Grand Opera Orchestra, Brevard Symphony Orchestra, South Florida Symphony Orchestra, Ocala Symphony Orchestra, and Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.
