Precarious - for Alto Sax, Vibes, & Cello

Composed in 2014, Agitato is a dance on the knife’s edge between catharsis and control.  The piece received Honorable Mention in Tribeca New Music Festival’s national Young Composers’ Competition 2017.  It has been performed at Charlotte New Music Festival, Music by Women Festival, Nashville Chamber Music Series, and Belmont University. 

Agitato - for Solo Piano

Fuse is a piano trio inspired by an abstract painting that features sharp angles and stark contrasts.  These aspects are reflected in the composition through the frequent meter changes and uneven syncopations.  Fuse was one of six works chosen to be featured in the Nashville Composer Collective’s November 2016 concert.

Fuse - for Flute, Cello, & Piano

Airborne - Solo Piano Album

Released in 2013 following my senior year of high school, Airborne is my debut solo piano album, featuring both my audio engineering, and five of my piano compositions.  The project was a nine-month labor of love, in which I composed thirty-five minutes of music and then recorded, edited, and mastered the whole album myself at my home studio.  Airborne is available on iTunes here, and you can read about the journey from start to completion of the project on my blog.
