Organization and Competition Counseling

With an Economics B.A. degree from Northwestern Univeristy in addition to my experience in the classical music field, I provide practical solutions for any music organization, whether in relation to managerial or artistic issues. In 2019, I was the inaugural SFZP International Fortepiano Competition Coordinator for American Classical Orchestra in NYC. I am comfortable and confident in helping a music organization or competition be both an artistic and financial success. 

Boxing Instruction

I teach beginner and intermediate private boxing/striking lessons, with an emphasis on mitt work, strength and conditioning, and efficient switch stance combos lending to practical implementation to M.M.A. My training experience includes M.M.A./Muay Thai/BJJ/Wrestling at Modern Martial Arts in Pasadena, CA, boxing at John's Boxing Club and Ultimate Muay Thai in New York, and boxing and krav maga at Tier One Training Center in Evanston/Chicago. I have trained alongside and sparred with fighters currently in top organizations such as the UFC, and have coached both kids and adults in boxing and stand-up striking.
