I am a composer, pianist, podcaster, and sound designer. I studied composition at the University of Michigan, Bard College, and Simon’s Rock College, and have taught music at Juniata College, Hamilton College, Indiana University South Bend, and the Ithaca College London Center. Burning the Thrushes, my podcast about sound and listening, is available wherever you get your podcasts. I have composed for orchestra, chamber ensembles, chorus, voices, and, more recently, electroacoustic works that feature field recordings and keyboard improvisations. I have received commissions from Glimmerglass Opera, the Albany Symphony, the Dogs of Desire, and the New York Youth Symphony, among other organizations. I was born in New York City and raised in upstate New York, and now lives and work in Central Pennsylvania.
