Greetings!

Welcome to my site! I hope you find something to interest or entertain you. If not, at least you can see what I would look like as a cartoon!

Carnegie Mellon University

My day gig! My plate is wonderfully full at Carnegie Mellon University. My big boy title is Assistant Teaching Professor of Music in Music Entrepreneurship and Euphonium. Additionally, I co-lead the Exploded Ensemble, am the Freshman Advisor, lead the Tartan Tuba Band, host the Modern Musicking Podcast and am excited to launch a new related venture, the Modern Musicking Center. I feel incredibly privileged to teach and mentor at this phenomenal institution. I wholeheartedly feel that we have a unique opportunity to shape the future of music-making, due to the sorts of collaborations possible on a campus like CMU in a city like Pittsburgh. Best gig I've ever had.
