This is BIG NEWS and a BIG moment for me...
I'm so happy to announce that I have joined countless creators and professionals who serve, celebrate, and advocate in the name of music year-round. It’s an honor, and an absolute privilege, to be inducted as a member of the 2023 Recording Academy/GRAMMYs class as an official voting member!
What does this mean? Let me tell you! So I now have the privilege of participating in and voting in THE GRAMMY nominations and selection process here in the United States! Along with voting privileges, I have more opportunities to advocate for music education, rights, and community everywhere! What a dream come true!!
A huge thank you to Bill Hare (Bill Hare Productions) and Rob Dietz for recommending me, and for your mentorship and support over all these years! You continue to inspire me everyday with your own beautiful work!
A huge thank you to Ball in the House, for allowing me to continue my dream of a music/a cappella career. I'm blessed everyday to make great music with you all.
A huge thank you to all of my music teachers who helped me get to this point in my music career. I wouldn't be where I am if it weren't for you. I cherish your musical wisdom and inspiration everyday I step on stage or work with a group. Among many others, ranging from elementary school to Ithaca College, thank you Paul Tomashefsky, Sue Cooper, Karen Forrest, Joseph Stillitano, Matt Lefebvre, David Jost, Frank Gabriel Campos, Dr. Mark Fonder, Mike Titlebaum, Drew Benoît, Dr. Jennifer Sengin, and Dr. Janet Galván.
A huge thank you to my family and friends for all of the love and support since I picked up the trumpet in 5th grade. Look how far I've come!
To my wife and son, Alex and Mateo, I am thankful for all of your unending cheering, support, and inspiration to be the best version of myself every single day, both inside and outside of my music world. I feel your love every time I'm immersed in my passion, and I am forever grateful. I love you forever +1+2+3 💙❤️
