The first thing I remember doing is playing violin, and I hope fiddling is the last thing I do before I die. Nothing brings me more joy than creating music, and I always strive to bring that same joy to my listeners.

I’ve been studying violin since age three, and have now journeyed from classical to bluegrass to rock, pop, and beyond. I also love learning about and sharing the history behind my music. After specializing in the history of Ancient Greek Music as an undergraduate at Yale University, I went on to study American Music in the Public Humanities Master’s Program at Brown. My solo music and history work have been featured by the Smithsonian, The Yale University Art Gallery, a Rhode Island vocational high school (through the year-long support of a Rhode Island State Council for the Arts’ grant), Smugglers’ Notch Ski Resort, and the 2014 and 2015 Brown University Folk Festival. I also served as the Director of Cultural Engagement for the non-profit Braver Angels and continue to support their creative programming as an advisor and performer (you can read about my work in Forbes and the music team’s latest work in the NY Times). My research on Civil War memory has been published by Routledge and the Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment and Technology and quoted by USA Today

After 7 years in Nashville and completing my J.D. (Order of the Coif) at Vanderbilt Law School, I moved to Washington, D.C., where I am clerking on the D.C. Court of Appeals from 2023-2024 and performing as a musical pirate (more to come). To learn more about me, check out this interview with the Brown Folk Fest and this podcast for Braver Angels. 

This website gives you a preview of what I do, but my music is made for live performance, so come hear me in person!
