I'm a solo clarinetist whom also plays the alto clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, guitar, and bass guitar. On each instrument, I have over 4 years of experience on. My main instrument is the clarinet which I have been playing on for 10 years and counting. I have played gigs for churches, funerals, with a jazz combo for the mayor of Miami Lakes, and more. I take my craft seriously as I would love to make a living off of my talent.

Gig Length: 10 - 80 minutes
I was born and raised in Miami with a passion for music. I am currently studying Music at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, FL on a $15,000 scholarship from my musicianship. I was playing the clarinet since I was 8 years old then started picking up the bass and alto clarinets when I was 12. I then decided that I wanted to learn the guitar and bass guitar when I was 13 and the alto saxophone when I was 14. My first gig was for the Jesus People International Church of Christ for a memorium service when I was 16. Ever since I felt the satisfaction of making my own money from my playing, I became anxious for the next paycheck. I balanced studies, band practice, and school work and graduated with the class of 2014 in the top 15%. I have not taken any private lessons until I started college and I was always asked if I was due to my skill level which was "far beyond your(my) years," as people would put it. I own 3 out of the 6 instruments I play and I continue to save money from my gigs to pay for the other instruments so I cannot slack on my craft and continue doing what I love and move on to bigger and better things.
