I am a Coach, Speaker, Educator, &
Radically Traditional Flutist…
I believe the most traditional path for an artist is to engage with the art of their own time. 

As a flutist, I create, perform, and fearlessly explore the growth edges of sonic possibilities for my instruments while integrating new and historically reimagined works with electronics, movement, and other multi-disciplinary elements to create seamless, immersive concert experiences that illuminate new understandings. 


I’m obsessed with sound and believe whole-heartedly in Sound Inclusivity – the idea that all sounds from all music and time periods are inherently beautiful and enrich our lives in a myriad of different ways. 

Through my work as an integrative coach, I use neuroscience, somatic practices, insatiable curiosity, and the fearlessness of a world-class performer to help people love & trust themselves fully and create wildly fulfilling lives & careers. To quote a client: I help you person better.


As the Artistic Director and Co-founder of FluteXpansions, I foster a community of sonic exploration at the frontier of contemporary flute performance and composition through a comprehensive e-learning platform and revolutionary mentoring courses.
