I am a 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. 


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


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. 


Through my work as a coach, I fully integrate who I am as a human and artist to illuminate boundless potential and help creative humans step into their full power to create a radiantly joyful, fulfilling life and career that reflects who they truly are.
