What a gift it is to get to make music every day with such amazing students!
I grew up in Chapel Hill and went to college at UNC (go Heels!), then left home to earn an MFA in musical theater writing (NYU/Tisch) and write musicals in New York City, San Francisco, and around the world. I also worked as a teaching artist, creating songs with students in the Bronx (through Lincoln Center Theater), putting on shows in Manhattan public schools (with the Roundabout), and guiding students in Nashville Alternative Learning Centers through the songwriting process (with TPAC).
In January of 2020, I moved back to NC to teach music at Woods. Our focus here is on creating music as choral ensembles, rock bands, and beat makers (electronic and live). We understand music to be something with great power: power to heal, to comfort, to unite, to inspire to action, and to touch the spirit. What a gift it is to make music.
