I am excited to be here on Hilton Head Island. Since becoming a permanent resident in 2016, I have played with the Hilton Head Choral Society, the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, several churches, and receptions at various plantations. I have also played in churches in Savannah and the Savannah Philharmonic. I look forward to meeting more people, playing in new churches and for wedding and receptions in the area's beautiful plantations and venues.
