Guitar is just a hobby for me, but music is definitely my life. I am a full time student at Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, Virginia, to become a music educator. I'm also receiving a performance certificate in French Horn and a possible secondary major/minor in Music Composition.
When I'm not being musical, I enjoy playing tennis, racketball, sometimes basketball, even though I'm terrible at it, running/bicycling, and just hangin' out. I am a brother of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, the finest fraternity in all the land, so don't mess.
I volunteer with my old high school's marching band, which takes up most of my weekend in the fall, and that's pretty much it. The end.
