I was born in Nashville, Tennessee and raised in Southern California. I spent the first 16 years of my life studying classical cello and piano, and played electric guitar in bands through high school. At Wesleyan University, my coursework spanned from ancient to contemporary studies; from exploring electronic music with musical luminary Alvin Lucier to learning the intricacies of the Javanese Gamelan and West African drums. I went on to earn a Master’s in Music Technology from NYU’s Steinhardt School in 2012. I completed the Tonmeister Honor's Sequence, which focuses on recording and production. My thesis was a written comparison of analog tape and digital recording, as it pertains to recorded music, coupled with an accompanying album where each track was recorded on a different analog tape machine.
I now live and work in Los Angeles as a freelance sound designer + mixer and multi-instrumentalist composer. I've worked on projects for Senior Post, One Thousand Birds, Wondros and Pineapple Street Media.
