Music Composition

I’ve been honored to perform with John Rutter, Nina Nastasia, Ellen Fullman, Kelly Rossum, and many others in venues ranging from the grungiest of bars to Carnegie Hall in NY.  My music compositions explore elements of modern classical, folk, and found-sound, often incorporating electronic instruments.

Some of my less academic musical pieces can be heard online, including a full-length album from 2010. I was part of a boisterous klezmer ensemble that recorded an album in 2012. I played regularly at the Hyde Park Salons with Alex Edelman from 2013-2018, and a few of these pieces are here. Before 2013, I worked as a musician and composer for a dance department and taught lessons on guitar & drum set.
