Hi! I love working with music, sound and movement with the body as the point of genesis. Over the years, I've been in various roles as an artist in dance; musician, sound designer, composer, and dancer, in Illinois, California and New York. Right now, I'm Music Director in the Department of Dance at the University of California Riverside. Before arriving at UCR, and I was a dance musician at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and at several ACDA conferences. Recently, I was on the music faculty at Eastern Illinois University where he taught music technology and served as audio director. Additionally, I spent two summers as Recording Engineer for the National Repertory Orchestra in Breckenridge, CO, which I loved! I have graduate and undergraduate degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Theatre Sound Design and Technology, and a Bachelor of Arts in Music.
