I am a sixteen year old pianist and have been playing since the age of five. I perform at recitals, competitions, and in my school orchestra. I have also played piano at private events, local restaurants, nursing homes, and in Jim Brickman's Holiday Show. I have been a finalist in several competitions, including Louisville's Got Talent, for which I am currently a board member.
In my spare time, I also enjoy playing instruments such as bass, drums, and guitar. I have composed music for my school orchestra and love physics, math, and playing on my esports team.
