About Me

Actually AutisticADHDLGBTQIA

I have a passion for the arts, including music, writing, and art. In the past I have worked as a church Pianist for 2 churches and guest advocate at Target. I recently ventured into painting landscape murals. I was drum major for 3 years in high school marching band, and I was head Drum Major my final year, training the assistant drum majors. That year I painted over 50 Bob Ross paintings on canvas paper and wooden spoons to be given at band camp as gifts and awards, kicking off my interest in oil painting and landscape painting. I have been playing piano since I was 8, and I was first chair clarinet in Wind ensemble my Senior year. I also participated in MSBOA District XVI Honors band as a clarinetist, Pit band as a Keyboardist, and National Honor Society during my time in school. I was chosen as best Sophomore, junior, and Senior by band camp staff, and was selected by my peers for the Patrick S. Gilmore band award for outstanding contributions my senior year. I attended Drum major camp at Michigan State University my sophomore year to gain experience. I have interests in music and the arts, Attack On Titan, Japan, Carl Jung's cognitive functions, Ravens, Tarot, and The Sims!

Skills & Strengths

Neuroexceptional Talents

When I am passionate about something or have a special interest, I go all out in my work. I live and breathe what I do and go above and beyond. For example, I was Drum Major of my high school marching band for 3 years. I painted over 50 Bob Ross paintings my senior year as Head Drum Major. The paintings were on canvas paper inserted into binders given as gifts to our section leaders at camp, and on wooden spoons given as band camp awards to members. After graduating, I also painted a mural of Mt Fuji and Sakura in our garage, which I worked on every day for about 2 weeks. I later painted a mural of the sky and hills for a local restaurant.
