I’m a classical bassoonist.  I’m also a pole fitness enthusiast.  I’m the founding director of the Bassoon Chamber Music Composition Competition, Inc.; I’m also the owner of Aerial Dance Pole Exercise LLC.  Often times people think I must have a split personality, but really these two activities go together in my world.  I got into pole while I was researching functional strength training as a away to limit performing injuries.  Now the strength and empowerment I’ve gotten from the sport of pole has made me a better bassoon performer.  Recently photographer Dan Powers from the Post Crescent was intrigued by my duality and created this video about how my two passions interconnect.
