Who inspired you to take up your instrument
My mom was a trumpet player at Juilliard in the 1970s at a time when female trumpet players were very uncommon. Her determination and drive has deeply inspired my motivation towards music.
Favorite musical memory
Performing “Nimbus 2000” from Harry Potter under the baton of John Williams at my alma mater, USC. He was incredibly gracious and humble, and the woodwind parts are incredibly fun to play!
