I first started playing when I was 12. I received my horn, a
zephyr, from my great ant. I first started on alto then I eventually
played on all three saxophones extensively at one point in my
band career. I started in classical but was introduced to jazz in
my junior high years. I was involved in a band that was organized
outside of high school and we called our selves the Rum House
Jazz Mafia or R.H.J.M. I was the Bari player in that band. I've
moved several times and have played at three different high
schools. those schools being Uintah, Lehi, and Westlake high
school, all here in Utah. My senior year I was first chair and section leader and was rewarded the Luis Armstrong jazz award.
I graduated from westlake in 2010 and now play for The Utah
Vally University Jazz Band.
