She has a fearless thirst for crunchy non-functional harmony and a love for mixing all of the things that should remain separate. Her works have been featured on television, at the White House, and have honored presidents, prime ministers, senators, and royalty. She learned how to doctor music at the University of Colorado at Boulder, whilst running muddy trails, teaching electronic music and scuba diving. She spends her summers guiding & learning from students at Interlochen Center for the Arts. She was dubbed a master at the University of Texas at Austin. In general, she plays well with others, occasionally receives awards. and does her best to not run with scissors. Her alter ego spends her daylight hours writing and arranging music for the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own.” In the evenings, she remains at large in the shadows of the Washington D.C. area.
