I aim to create life-affirming music that engages the listener’s imagination, moves the body, and uplifts the spirit. Through education, I nurture the musical and professional development of students to be curious listeners and self-actualizing performers.
Explore my music: improvisations in jazz performance, arrangements for worship settings, and compositions for interdisciplinary projects with dancers, authors, and filmmakers.
I teach at Luther College in Decorah, IA and offer private lessons and clinics. With students, I cultivate creativity and self-actualization through a process of listening, technique, and repertoire study.
