Composition has always an integral part of my musical experience. My music is heavily informed by my experience as a pianist and trumpet player. I am heavily involved in electro-acoustic music, and I believe that the expanding horizons in this area of music hold immense promise.

Beyond composition, I am also active as a conductor. I am currently working towards a related field in conducting, and had the fortune to conduct the Harding University Wind Symphony as their student conductor for two seasons.

I feel that composition is necessary to any well-rounded musical education—not only for those wishing to pursue composition as a career—and integrates well with the core subjects of theory and history.

As a composer, a central focus of my work is collaboration—not only with performers, but also other composers. I have been privileged to be able to work with players of an exceptionally high caliber who have helped me immensely and inspired me more than I can thank them for. I am always open to new collaborations and encourage any performers or composers to reach out to me with project ideas
