Member of the Orchestra since


Most memorable experience with the Orchestra

Forgetting to set my clock forward in the spring and missing the start of a Sunday concert.

How I got started playing my instrument

Jealousy of my sister. I was in 2nd grade, she in fourth. She started cello, and I was jealous. Mom got special permission from the West Des Moines schools and the bass teacher for me to start bass in second grade.

Favorite composer


Other than classical music _____ is on my iPod

Everything (country, rock, metal, hip hop) except Jazz.
