Tarantino's forthcoming debut album, "Winds of Change," announces this young alto saxophonist as a composer of sharply plotted but gracefully unencumbered straight-ahead jazz [...] an announcement of her lovely, ardent way of improvising.

Hello World! // Summer 2019

Hello and Happy Summer! Welcome to my website. I hope that you enjoy a glimpse into my world as a musician and educator. This Summer is bringing lots of exciting things with it, and I’m so glad that you’re along for the ride. A huge highlight of 2019 so far has been receiving the Gerry and Franca Mulligan Scholarship in support of my Graduate Studies at The Juilliard School. I was honored to spend a day with Franca learning about Gerry’s life and visiting his studio. Thank you to the Gerry and Franca Mulligan Foundation!

These past few months have been full of touring and/or performing with many different ensembles. From New York to L.A. to Abu Dhabi, I’ve had the pleasure of making music with Ulysses Owens Jr.’s New Century Jazz Orchestra for Kurt Elling’s“The Big Blind”,The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Arturo O’Farrill & The Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, and Sherrie Maricle  & The DIVA Jazz Orchestra.

My first record as leader for Posi-Tone Records is now available. Winds of Change can be purchased here or streamed on your preferred music service.  I hope you give it a listen! In the meantime, please feel free to check out and subscribe to my latest videos which are released weekly on my YouTube channel.

Thank you for visiting and for your continued support! If you’d like to stay in the loop, please subscribe to my mailing list here.
