Additional Info: Ever since I first began composing some ten years ago, music and its creation have increasingly become more a part of me, so that what was first an amusement has become the center of how I view myself. This might not have been, however, if it were not for some early encouragement. In both 2003 and 2004, I won 3rd place in the Illinois Music Educators Association's Composition Contest for the Keyboard Solo category; these awards told me that I had talent worthwhile to pursue.
As a student at Webster University, I had several chances to have my compositions performed, such as being a member of the New Music Ensemble, and one weekly recital which was dedicated for student composers. The best opportunity, however, came during my junior year in 2010, when I was asked to write the music for the Webster Conservatory's production of Cloud 9. This endeavor led to a request from the student director of that show to write the music for the capstone for his major in directing, The Wonderful World of Dissocia, which was performed in March 2011, to good acclaim. Also performed in March was my Senior Composition Recital, which included my first performed chamber orchestra piece, an Overture to As You Like It.
Currently, I am working on a couple songs, a piano quintet, a tone poem for orchestra based on the painting "Sadak in Search of the Waters of Oblivion," and my largest work yet, an opera-oratorio based on Euripides' tragedy Trojan Women. I studied composition with Robert Chamberlin, professor of music at Webster University, where I earned a BM in Composition.
