I am a bassoonist and arranger based in New York City and originally from Seattle. I just finished my doctorate at Juilliard, where my research and performance projects focused on music inspired by fairy tales. Visit my website to learn more about me!

Traditional Repertoire

I play a wide variety of repertoire ranging from my own arrangements of familiar classical favorites to hidden gems of the bassoon repertoire. I frequently collaborate with composers to create new music, and I also love performing music of the Baroque and Renaissance on historical instruments. I enjoy performing solo or with friends!
