I am a Bachelor of Arts with a Music Major and Computer Science Concentration from Cornell University, 2000, where I took conducting lessons with Mark Scatterday (Eastman School of Music, Conducting and Ensembles, Chair) and Scott Tucker (Washington Choral Arts Society, Artistic Director). As an undergraduate, I studied Music Theory under Annette Richards, Grammy Award and Pulitzer Prize Nominee Roberto Sierra, James Webster, and Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Steven Stucky.

In the Computer Science field, as an undergraduate, I studied Digital Logic, Program Structure under Dexter Kozen, Data Structures under Eva Tardos, and Artificial Intelligence, including combinatorial search and economic decision theory under Bart Selman. I hold a Master of Music in Conducting from Central Michigan University School of Music, 2011, where I studied Choral Conducting with Nina-Nash Robertson, and took Instrumental Conducting from José-Luis Maúrtua. I have also had a brief but highly influential stint studying Choral Conducting with Graeme Langager at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

I perform music professionally and no longer work in software.
