Here is a list of some of my achievements!
I have performed around 2000 concerts in Canada, The USA, and Europe.
I received my diploma in Jazz Studies from the Victoria Conservatory of Music in 2013.
I have been teaching private music lessons since 2012, and I have also taught at Larsen Music (now defunct) from 2012-2016, and South Island Studio from 2014-2016.
