A bit of personal info you’re willing to share: “I'm currently a resident of Minnetonka living with my cousin Nicole and her dog Harlan. I graduated from the University of Minnesota last spring with a degree in mathematics and was very fortunate to be hired right after leaving school for the job I currently have. I am excited to begin this new season with Minnesota Brass and am interested to see what this new year can bring. I am hoping as a leader to help and give back to a group that has taught me so much and has allowed me to march with some of my best friends.”
