Composition

I am a composer of contemporary art music. My work frequently has a strong narrative component and is primarily concerned with exploring space through disparate textures and tunings.

Performance

As a saxophonist I specialize in new music, French Romantic music, and music of the Baroque era. In an effort to expand the repertoire, I've also commissioned and premiered several new works. I also perform on piano and Baroque recorder.

Gaming

When not creating music, I am working full-time in the table top games industry as a publisher, developer, writer, and marketer. I work for the Tabletop Tycoon family of companies that includes Starling Games, Sparkworks, Flying Meeple, and PolyHero Dice.

Writing

I frequently write about music, technology, literature, games, media, culture, gender, sports, and the intersections of all these things. 

Please contact me if you are interested in obtaining a piece of writing for reference, use in a class, or just for your own reading enjoyment.



Featured Work

My piece for marimba and bass clarinet "What I can't Quit" recently received its east coast premiere as part of the Times Two Concert Series in Boston. It was performed by Transient Canvas, who also commissioned and premiered the piece.
