I absolutely loved my music experience at W&M. I'm so grateful for all of the opportunities I had to collaborate with such a variety of talented people. I don't think I would be the person I am today without the people I met, created with, learned from and befriended doing music things in college, and it's a time in my life I truly treasure.
