Piano and Composition

I work as an educator, composer and pianist. I am currently Assistant Professor of Core Music Studies at Roosevelt University in Chicago. I have earned a Doctor of Music degree in Music Composition from Indiana University and Master and Bachelor of Music from The Juilliard School as a student of John Corigliano, Samuel Adler and Robert Beaser.

I have received commissions from the Indiana University New Music Ensemble, Minnesota Youth Symphonies, Jasper String Quartet, New Juilliard Ensemble, Minnesota Symphonic Winds, Philomusica Chamber Orchestra of Minneapolis, Roosevelt University CCPA Wind Ensemble, Sheridan String Quartet, Sejong Cultural Society of Chicago, Gaudete Brass, Da Capo Chamber Alliance, Western Kentucky University, EAMA Chorale and Hidden Valley Music Seminars. My compositions have been performed throughout the United States and around the world. My music has aired on Chicago’s WFMT 98.7 FM. In 2011 I was nominated for the annual composition competition of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.  

As composer and pianist, I have collaborated with such established artists as Thomas Stacy (New York Philharmonic), Robert Walters (Cleveland Orchestra), Elaine Douvas (Metropolitan Opera Orchestra), Linda Strommen (Indiana University), Roger Roe (Indianapolis Symphony), April Clayton (Brigham Young University), Daniel Stolper (Interlochen Arts Center), Nicholas Stovall (National Symphony), Meng-Chieh Liu (Curtis Institute), Jennifer Berg (San Antonio Symphony), David Conte (San Francisco Conservatory), and Nathan Mills (Grant Park Festival Orchestra). I publish my own compositions as a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP).
