I must say, I had so many personal projects lined up for this summer (several of which included being more active here on dA) that there was no way I was even going to finish them all. In fact, if I had finished half of them I would have been pleasantly surprised. But life has a funny way of making plans for you, even if you think you've already planned it all.

I was fortunate enough to be awarded a substantial work study figure for this summer, so I've actually been working three part-time work study positions for the last month and a half or so. That hasn't left me with nearly enough time to get anything done, so I've really had to prioritize.

Unfortunately, dA just didn't really make the cut. Music was more important, and I've actually finished a couple of pieces in my limited time, and am revising a couple of others and drafting three more. Of the two pieces I have finished, one is a small haiku for voice and piano that I have yet to have recorded, but the other is a small chamber work for flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon entitled Sterile Fugue. While I haven't technically recorded that one either, the virtual instruments don't sound so bad, unlike the virtual voice, which cannot sing a single syllable (except "ah"). So you can listen to the fugue on my SoundCloud or on my portfolio site. Be sure to let me know what you think of it!

Now It's Feature Time!

2015 July 15—I thought summer would mean more time to get caught up with things, but I was awarded $2,000 in work study money for this summer. Needless to say, I've been working a lot, and haven't had much time to devote here.

2015 April 15—The final month of my college semester is currently consuming all my time. I will not be logging in again until May 15th. I'll be able to catch up then.

2015 April 3—I'm finally making some progress in my feedback messages. I want to personally thank all of you for your faves, watches, and comments. Your patience is appreciated as I get to these bit by bit.

Who I Am

I am a versatile and passionate creator who enjoys experimenting with design, playing with code, and crafting new music.


I first discovered my love for music as a child from singing weekly in various community choirs to “playing” video games — you could often find one of my games idling as I simply absorbed the soundtrack.

2005 marked the beginning of my instrumental career. I chose to study the French horn, which has proven to be an excellent fit for me. I continue to grow both in musicianship and technique.

In addition to performance, I also have some recent recording experience and equipment, and am eager to find opportunities to record horn, vocals, and voiceovers for collaborative projects.


I have been practicing music composition since 2007, although my formal instruction began the summer of 2014. I enjoy composing concert works and am also looking for opportunities to compose for media.


Determined to become a professional musician, yet overwhelmed by the cost, I sought an alternative solution in 2013. Web design seemed to be a promising industry, so I enrolled at Ridgewater College in pursuit of an associate degree.

After a semester of introductory classes in both programming and multimedia design, I realized that my passion was not music as I had thought, but creating in general, and soon found myself pursuing a double major.

I am drawn to clean designs with tasteful typography and careful consideration of space. My favorite part of the design process is working directly with clients to produce designs that satisfy their desires and meet their needs. I am always open to a good challenge, and welcome all forms of input and feedback.
