Pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts at University of Minnesota

With the official letter in hand from the University of Minnesota, School of Music, I'm pleased to announce that I will be pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts at UMN, with a Teaching Assistantship and full tuition remission.

I am looking forward to the next 3+ years of engaging in scholarship, teaching, meeting new friends and colleagues, and being a part of Maja Radovanlija's guitar studio!


Accepted in the 2019 Parkening International Guitar Competition


I have the good pleasure of announcing that I have been accepted as one of 15 competitors into the 2019 Parkening International Guitar Competition!

This competition has one of the most rigorous audition applications as competitors must submit a half hour unedited audition video, with most of the pieces being chosen by the competition.

I thought that I would share this video, because it represents many months and hundreds of hours of preparation; even as there are many moments and sections that I would change and I’m still working on improving.

Looking forward to being in Malibu this June!

Soli Deo Gloria.


A full list of competitors from around the world will be posted on March 25 by the Parkening Media
