What defines my entrepreneurial career is the pursuit of multiple projects, whether as a performer, curator, teacher, or director. It creates a beautiful network of people around me whom I love and admire, and a patchwork quilt of art that truly satisfies my love of creativity.

Ear Taxi Festival
I currently serve as the Executive and Artistic Director of Ear Taxi Festival which is a Chicago-centric new music festival that will be held in venues throughout the city. It will also feature 4 major commissions and premieres, keynote panel discussions, professional development workshops, and keynote speaker George Lewis.
I also serve as the Executive and Artistic Director of Chicago-based Picosa, a chamber ensemble comprised of flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, and Composer-in-Residence. This ensemble is filled with my favorite human beings who also happen to be world-class musicians.
I created and launched Credo Flute at Elmhurst University, a summer flute intensive where I teach with some of the world’s great flutists.
In the 2019-2020 season I had the great privilege of launching two commercially released albums into the universe: Giantess and Vox. I am beyond thrilled with the reception these albums received, even though I think it was maybe a little crazy to launch two albums simultaneously.
What lies ahead
My next endeavor launches in coming months, my recordings of the complete J.S. Bach Cello Suites. These will be recorded at the beautiful Epiphany Center for the Arts with Sound Engineer Dan Nichols. I also have a top-secret new concert series in the works modeled after the great Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz. Those of you who know me, know how much I love to hear people’s stories… Stay tuned for more news!
Please feel free to be in touch if you have a collaborative idea to pursue together, and be sure to drop by after any concert to say hello. I’d love to see you!
