As a PhD candidate in ethnomusicology at the University of Florida and a Fulbright grantee to Fez, Morocco for 2012-13, I will be working toward completing a research project on the relationship between ethics and aesthetics in popular manifestations of religious music.
As an adjunct lecturer, I teach undergraduate courses on world music and American popular music, both live and online. I performed regularly on violin and viola in North Florida with the Gainesville Chamber Orchestra, the Ocala Symphony Orchestra, the Valdosta Symphony Orchestra, and the Albany Symphony Orchestra.
Other pastimes include: fiddlin’ between sips of good beer, banjo plucking, singing poorly, and setting a good bass line down in a funky pocket. Get in touch if you want to talk about, well, anything really.
