About me

Trained as a pianist, I have always been drawn to the collaborative aspects of music making. In addition to the social aspect of working with other musicians,

I enjoy the process of interpretation, of bringing the separate parts and lines together into a musical whole to express color, texture and the emotional power

of a piece.


Growing up, I sang in a choir and in the children’s chorus for several opera productions and regularly sought out opportunities in chamber music programs and youth orchestra. During undergraduate studies, I continued to collaborate, playing with the Oberlin Orchestra and with Oberlin’s Contemporary Music Ensemble, accompanying vocalists and instrumentalists, and premiering works

by student composers. I have been a rehearsal pianist and Assistant Conductor with Oberlin Opera Theater productions. Leading an ensemble is very much a collaborative endeavor, and I also serve as Assistant Conductor for the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestra Philharmonia and Associate Conductor for the Center City Chamber Orchestra in Philadelphia, PA.


I have long been interested in opera,

and have recently been exploring contemporary repertoire.  I feel strongly about highlighting lesser known works and new voices. As a musician, I am committed to thinking about how to best convey the relevance of classical and contemporary music, to contribute to and engage our community, and to make music and opportunities to make music accessible for all.
