Music has been the largest driving force in my live for the past decade. Its taken me many places across Iowa and the United States and its the reason I'm at Ball State Right now. Below are some pictures that show where music has taken me, and a video of my Brass Quintet at the Atlantic Brass Quintet Seminar.

Faith is something that has been a part of my life since I was born. I went through 13 years of Catholic school, and it has definitely made me into the person I am today.


Traveling is a recent interest, over the past year I have been to over twelve different states. Below are a map of the states I've been to in the past year and pictures of me in some of those states. David Bowie's "Space Oddity" is my favorite song to listen to while taking off.

Des Moines

Even though there are bigger and better cities out there, Des Moines will always hold a special place in my heart.

Wes Anderson Films

A few years ago, I discovered a movie called Moonrise Kingdom, which is one of Wes Anderson's newest films. After discovering this film, i delved deeper and deeper into his works and realized I had discovered my favorite director. He is well known for his use of symmetry and color schemes throughout his films.
