I am a web developer, music theorist, and educator based in Rochester, New York.
As a web developer, I build applications in the browser that facilitate music learning. I recently joined Artusi, a small tech startup with the mission of helping people learn and teach music theory. As Vice President of Technology at Artusi, I play a key role in the development of a web application that is used in music theory courses across the country.
As a music theorist, I am currently writing a dissertation on syncopation in 20th-century American popular music, with my advisor David Temperley at the Eastman School of Music. I have published in Psychology of Music (2019), and presented at the Society for Music Perception and Cognition (2013, 2015, 2017) as well as the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (2018).
As an educator, I work with students in Eastman's music theory curriculum. I also offer a course on web design and usability at Eastman's Institute for Music Leadership (2017-), and a 2-week intensive "Web Designer Bootcamp" in the University of Rochester's Pre-College curriculum (2018-). In 2018, 2019, and 2020 I was invited to serve as a faculty member of the Eastman Leadership Academy.
