About

Greetings! I am a Denver-based music educator who specializes in musical creativity and design. At the University of Illinois I am earning my Master of Music Education and at Northwestern University I earned my BM in Music Composition and MA in Sound Arts & Industries. At the Chicago Park District I taught preschool music, voice, piano, guitar, and wrote and music directed children’s musicals. Prior to that I interned at 98.7 WFMT, coached middle school track & field, and worked for composer Paul Caldwell at the Youth Choral Theater of Chicago.
