About

I am a web developer, music theorist, and educator based in Rochester, New York.

As a web developer, I am primarily interested in music notation software that aids music learning. I am developing a notation editor that provides users with real-time feedback on part writing and counterpoint exercises. Among other apps, I developed the software for MusEdConnect, a company that connects music education students with public school music teachers.

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 and 2019 I was invited to serve as a faculty member of the Eastman Leadership Academy, which attracts top music students from around the country.
