About me:

I create music in a few different ways--specifically notated scores, graphic notation and structured improvisation, and directly into Ableton. I also love to make physical objects with my hands (primarily ceramics and jewelry) and have recently gotten into instrument building. When not making music and art, I love to swim in the ocean and cuddle my three absurdly affectionate cats.

Other affiliations:
Keller Center Makerspace

How have I benefitted from mentorship?

I had a few informal mentor/friends who were getting their Masters or DMAs while I was getting my undergrad, and their support and advice was endlessly helpful and encouraging. Wouldn't be who and where I am today without them!
