I am a bassoonist in Austin, Texas. During my studies at UT and Juilliard, I have been working to improve as both a performer and teacher so that I can use music to learn about the world and its citizens. Since I believe there should be no separation between great artistry and social consciousness, I am especially passionate about teaching in communities with little access to art education. This is my place to write about my outreach adventures and goals: to explore, share, and learn.

First ASTEP Meeting
We had a great inaugural meeting for Artists Striving to End Poverty in Austin this weekend! Visual art, theater, creative writing, and music were represented, and so many ideas for projects were shared. I can't wait to continue working with this group of people!
