About Me

Hello and welcome to music! I hope you are excited as I am for this school year! My goal is not only to make beautiful music but use music as a medium to bring people from all backgrounds, cultures, and walks of life a little closer together. I am a native Houstonian, found myself at Blinn Jr College after high school, and transferred to Texas Tech University where I received my Bachelor's in Music Education. I am a percussionist and I was involved in percussion ensembles, drumlines, wind symphony's and much more.
Some fun facts:
  • I love water and eating spicy foods.
  • I love bachata, merengue, cumbia and anything really that I can dance to.
  • I enjoy cleaning, it's very therapeutic to me.
  • I enjoy exercising frequently. 
  • I can drive forklifts and other lift equipment.
  • Lastly, I enjoy playing along to my favorite songs on my drumset, it really warms my heart!
I am so incredibly happy to be here and give my very best to your school, community, and musical lives; let's go DPE!
