Music can take us on a personal journey to our true voice. I am here to support and guide you along your journey. Together, we can learn/write/perform any song/genre you desire. Music is a reflection of life itself, the experiences you live. I bring mental health and creative methods to make this music process a balanced and emotionally inclusive experience. I have performed and lived in Egypt, Japan and the United States over the course of the last 15 years. Living a multicultural life has brought my desire for exploration and adventure in different sonic landscapes a life long passion and now a profession.
I play French horn around the world with symphonies, DJ's, and in world music + sound healing collaborations.
Classical highlights from the last few years include performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Andrea Bocelli in Florida, and an exquisite song cycle featuring horn in San Francisco.
I've played amazing Calypso jams in Costa Rica, performances with Yemanjo and other DJ's at Ecstatic Dance Hawaii, collaborations with Silk Road Ensemble members. I facilitate jam sessions and sound healing sets.
