What is a favorite NSMS memory?

I remember feeling warm walking through the building doors and immediately being washed over with the sounds of teachers and students playing in different rooms. Sitting in class, enjoying watching and listening to my teachers and classmates play. Recital days, the anticipation and relief of a performance. Writing for the annual composition contests and playing my pieces during recitals.

What are you doing now?

I completed my undergraduate studies in 2019 and am living in NJ. I work as a lab technician at Roche. In my free time I enjoy being with my family, composing, and learning anything related to astrobiology, movies.
