I graduated from Bradley University with a bachelor’s degree in music and earned my Master of Music at the Ohio State University studying bassoon performance. I've taught bassoon, music appreciation, and early music at Bradley University and Illinois Central College, and I've performed in a wide range of ensembles in the United States and Australia. For the last decade, I was a core member and co-director of The Early Interval, the preeminent early music ensemble in Columbus, Ohio.

I perform on Renaissance and baroque recorder, viola da gamba, bassoon, and other medieval and renaissance woodwinds. I'm available to perform in symphonic settings, pit orchestras, chamber ensembles, and other ensembles in a variety of genres and venues in Redmond and the greater Seattle metro area.
