I am 22 years old and a recent graduate of the College of New Jersey music department in Music Education. After college, I was employed as an elementary school general music teacher in my hometown of Deptford New Jersey. While in college I started to become very interested in composing and arranging on a part time basis. Over the course of the 4 years there I have arranged one piece of music for Jazz Band, several pieces of trombone music, and I have composed a piece for String Orchestra. The trombone choir Mood Swing is my most recent composition thus far, and I hope to continue to write and eventually go back to school for a Masters in composition.
