A multi-faceted musician and teacher whose specialties include chamber music, orchestral repertoire, jazz, historical performance, and contemporary classical works for oboe and English horn. I am an active freelancer in Baroque, Classical, Contemporary, and Jazz ensembles in the Bay Area, and enjoy collaborating with contemporary composers to perform new works for oboe and English horn.

Traditional Repertoire

I love performing everything from Baroque to Contemporary and Crossover music. Some favorite composers of mine include Bach, Mozart, Britten, Couperin, Hottetere, Elliot Carter, Ned Rorem, Jacob ter Veldhuis, Poulenc, Strauss, and Tchaikovsky.
