I am from Memphis, TN and graduated with a Bachelor of Musical Arts Degree from DePauw University in Greencastle, IN. I have a Master's degree in Music Composition from DePaul University (Chicago, IL) where I studied composition under Christopher Jones, Seung-Ah Oh, and Kurt Westerburg.
I have studied Piano and Violin, but Viola is my primary instrument. My style is distinctly tonal and I write my melodies to be lyrical and memorable. I have always been fascinated by dancing and the coordinated and smoothly flowing movements of the older dance styles (e.g. Ballroom dancing) and my music reflects this.
If you should decide to perform any of my music, I would love to have a recording.
