Raised in a music-loving family, I started piano lessons at age seven, and began playing chamber music when I was twelve. After many years of singing in choruses, accompanying choruses and soloists on the piano, and playing chamber music, I returned to college for a second B.A., this time in Music Theory and Composition.
As a composer, my intention is to write music that is accessible and lyrical, yet contemporary sounding. My love of poetry and the human voice has inspired me to write art songs and music for chorus. These are presented on this site, along with music for solo piano and for small instrumental ensembles.
Besides music, I love all the other arts and the beauty of nature. I frequently attend plays, poetry readings, and art galleries. Hiking and canoeing are among my favorite outdoor activities.
