October 2012

I am a classical saxophonist, with a specialization in contemporary and multimedia works. I studied with Gary Louie at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, where I earned my BM in May 2012. In 2015, I was awarded a Fulbright grant to study saxophone in the Netherlands during the 2015/2016 academic year. During that time, I worked with Neils Bijl, of the Aurelia Saxophone Quartet, and Ties Mellema, of the Amstel Saxophone Quartet, among others. At the moment, I am based in the Netherlands, where I am in the second year of a Masters program which I began during my Fulbright year.

In addition to my work as a saxophonist, I have previously worked as an audio engineer, acoustician, and computer programmer. I also received my BM in Recording Arts and MA in Acoustics from Peabody. When teaching saxophone, I try to incorporate elements of music theory, acoustics, and recording technology, with the goal of instilling broad-minded musical literacy in my students.
