Profile Information

I am a:
Performing Artist, Administrator
My school is:
Manhattan School of Music; Northwestern University
My other school or arts organization is:
Carnegie Hall
My style(s) of music:
Classical, Electronic, Experimental, World
I am interested in:
Composing / Arranging, DJing, Making Music Videos, Multimedia Projects, Music History, Music Theory, Performing, Recording / Producing / Engineering
My musical instrument(s):
My favorite artists, influences, and inspirations are:
A few of my favorite classical instrumentalists are the clarinetist Martin Frost, cellist Jacqueline Du Pre, and pianist Mitsuko Uchida. I am also a huge fan of crossover artists such as mandolinist Chris Thile and bassist Edgar Meyer. My three favorite composers would have to be J.S. Bach, Osvaldo Golijov, and Leos Janacek. It's quite diverse bunch, but all of their music really speaks to me!
More about me:
I am originally from Flint, Michigan where I began my musical training on viola at my local performing arts school. I found my calling and switched to the clarinet quickly thereafter. My grandfather was an amateur jazz clarinetist during the swing era, so I always had a fascination with the instrument.

I went to the Interlochen Arts Academy in northern Michigan for high school and then continued on to do my bachelor's degree in clarinet performance at Northwestern University and my master's degree in orchestral performance at the Manhattan School of Music. I am currently the administrative assistant for education programs at Carnegie Hall.

In my spare time I am currently assembling a new music ensemble that pairs acoustic classical instrumentalists with DJs. It should be an exciting project!
