I am a versatile young artist in the Seattle area. I hold a Master's of Music
Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with and a Bachelor's of Music in Flute Performance from the University of Texas at Austin.
I am currently enrolled at the Cornish College of the Arts in their Artist Diploma program focusing in Early Music. I have appeared with the Detroit Symphony, Ukiah Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Healdsberg, Dearborn Symphony, and the St. Claire Shores Symphony. With the St. Claire Shores Symphony, I held the piccolo position for the 2004-2005 season. In 2005, I was the first prize winner of the South Eastern Michigan Flutists Association young artist competition, followed by a performance of the Nielsen Flute Concerto with the Dearborn Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Kypros Markou in 2006.
While in Austin, I worked with movie composer Hanan Townshend and can be heard on the movie soundtracks for Terrance Mallick’s Tree of Life and To the Wonder. During my time in San Francisco, I started to develop an interest in early music.
Winner of the 2012 San Francisco Conservatory of Music Baroque Concerto Competition, I performed C
.P.E. Bach’s Concerto for Flute and Orchestra in D Minor on baroque flute with the SFCM Baroque Ensemble. I also performed at the 2012 BFX Festival in Berkeley as a member of Ansambl Luython. I have performed in San Diego with the Pacific Bach Project and in San Francisco with MUSA and the Albany Consort. On baroque flute, I have received coachings from Greer Ellison, Stephen Schultz, Janet See, Philippe Allaine-Dupre, and Sandra Miller.
In January of 2013, I was appointed Artist in Residence with the Concerts in Marin concert series. This included organizing recital programs including works for flute and guitar
, baroque chamber music on period instruments, wind quintet, as well as small chamber works with flute and other wind instruments.
I was on faculty with UC Berkeley’s Young Musician’s Program from 2011-2013, prior to moving to Seattle to study early music. Currently based in Seattle, I am cultivating students and building a private studio. My primary teachers have been Timothy Day, Marianne Gedigian, Jeffery Zook, and Janet See.
