Vision for Sinfonia:

As an organization, I love the history and legacy of our story. It is one that can be told repeatedly and I will still fall in love with it. The love I have for our organization is the reason I desire to take it beyond the doors of chapter, or the music building. The story of Sinfonia should be heard by all. The impact of Phi Mu Alpha should be felt by all. The legacy of our organization and brotherhood should be seen across the globe. My vision for Phi Mu Alpha is to take our legacy and history and sharing it proudly. I believe we do a great job of doing that now, but there is still great opportunity to do more. My vision for Phi Mu Alpha is elevation.

Why Are You Running:

I am interested in running for office because I feel that it is essential if one desires to make that there be a commitment to seeing the results produced. As I have experienced life within the fraternity for the past 7 years, as a collegiate member, I have seen plenty of experiences of Sinfonians. I believe that it is essential that these experiences are elevated in a way that continues to create the best brotherhood possible. I want to highlight the experiences of those who feel like they are often not represented and create space to strengthen those that feel that they do. With my experience, leadership, and support I believe that I am fit for office.

Qualifications for Office:

I believe that any man who truly understands the power within our brotherhood is fit to hold the National Collegiate Representative office. Personally, I recognize that my ability to live our notable Object is what makes me qualified. I believe that the greatest asset we have to us all of us is the power of community. We have a great deal of support and the power to support others in accomplishing the goals of many. That to me is the development of the best and truest fraternal spirit. Knowing that the cost of living is service unto others, it is essential to know the power of the thing that draws all -- music. Music is the one powerful tool that encompasses all experiences of humanity. We must push for the mutual welfare and brotherhood of musical students and the advancement of music in America. I am loyal to this responsibility that I have chosen. It is my duty to succeed and ensure the success of those around me regardless of circumstance. These qualifications I consider my best.
