Composer | Clarinetist | Musician

I am a deaf and neurodivergent composer based in Michigan and write for a variety of ensembles and performers, from large ensembles to solo music.  My music focuses on many different topics pertaining to emotions and simple things in the human experience. My work has been performed and commissioned by: professional ensembles such as The _____ Experiment, The US Air Force Band, The Reverón Trio; various top collegiate bands such as the Michigan State University Wind Symphony, University of Illinois Wind Orchestra, and the Crane Wind Ensemble; and even by individuals such as Andrew Hosler and Christopher Keach. My main goal with these musical endeavors is to advocate for accessibility and to reach a wider range of audiences and performers by improving upon the framework of inclusive practices in music!
