Interests

Apart from my passion for web development, I enjoy a great deal of my time around music, both listening and playing. Trumpet is my main musical instrument and I have been playing for over 15 years now. For many of my playing years, I have been a part of several World Class Drum and Bugle Corps. including the Holy Name Cadets (Allentown, PA) and the Boston Crusaders (Boston, MA), both in the Drum Corps International circuit. I most recently served as Brass Captain for the Hawthorne Caballeros Drum and Bugle Corps. (Hawthorne, NJ) for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Off the field, I love staying active between weightlifting and being an outdoorsman. You will find me either camping, kayaking, hiking or playing any kind of sport I can involve myself in. Even though I am a die-hard fan of the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles and wear my fandom on my sleeve, I am a fanatic of all sports and enjoy attending live events any chance I can.


Web Development Portfolio
