I was born in Burlington, Vermont. I developed a love of music at a very young age, starting piano lessons when I was 6, and guitar lessons at 10. I earned a Bachelors degree in music at Skidmore College. Following an exploration of the musical culture of New York City, I happened upon the world of Music Therapy through a stint as a volunteer at NY Methodist hospital. The NYU Music Therapy program and subsequent employment have given me a broad range of experience, from children on the autism spectrum, to adults with mental health issues, and elders in a nursing home. I feel privileged to have found a career path that I find both enjoyable and personally meaningful.
I have a strong interest in practicing and learning music production. As a member of the musical group Gemma, I have produced several of our recordings.
