Sixth Year

About me:

I am a guitarist and composer interested in creative music of all types. I grew up on the West Coast, moved out East for grad school, and then spent 12 years gigging in New York before returning to academics to pursue my PhD. I play in several fun and weird bands and I enjoy writing music collaboratively.

How have I benefitted from mentorship?

I owe a great deal to a community of friends, teachers, and colleagues with whom I have grown as musician and as a person. I think everyone is ultimately on the same team, working together to advance our art and our careers.
