After completing degrees in music composition at USC and Indiana University, I served as Director of Education for Baltimore Opera, taught courses in songwriting and musical theater performance & history at USC, and performed extensively as a freelance pianist and music director. Most recently, I served as General Manager of Redlands Symphony, where I established the Redlands Symphony Summer Music Academy, bringing lessons and performance opportunities to young musicians.

My composition teachers included Frank Ticheli, Morten Lauridsen, and Sven-David Sandström. The primary focus of my career has been on administration and performance, but I greatly enjoy helping young artists to reach their potential and come to a greater love of music. Teaching has always been an important part of my life.

I spent part of high school in Germany, where I attended the Albert-Schweitzer-Gymnasium in Gundelfingen. In addition to using German regularly in the course of my work, I routinely travel to Germany and Austria to visit friends.

EDUCATION:
Bachelor of Music cum laude in Music Composition, University of Southern California
Master of Music in Music Composition (minors in Arts Administration and Electronic Music), Indiana University

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I know music can be a confusing field for someone who's just getting started, and I'm happy to help!
