I live in Brentwood, Tennessee, and I am currently a ninth grader at Brentwood High School. I started piano when I was nine. Currently, I am studying with Dr. Heather Conner in Blair Academy at Vanderbilt University, and I have been a recipient of the MJB merit scholarship for piano. I have participated and played in masterclasses by Alexander Kobrin, Michelle Cann, and Matti Raekallio in the East Carolina Piano Festival.

I was the winner of various piano competitions, including Nashville Piano Achievement Competition, Young Artist Achievement Awards, TMTA state competition, and UTC Piano Arts Competition. I received an award in the MTNA Junior Piano competition at the state level and an honorable mention in the Frost International Young Artist Piano Competition.

In addition to piano, I also play violin and I am a member of the Philharmonia Orchestra at Blair Academy.
