Northport, NY, about 40 miles east of New York City on Long Island. I went to college in Ohio for four years though, so I feel a bit like an honorary Ohioan.

What I Do:
I try to program music that is beautiful, edifying, and interesting. I want the listeners to hear old favorites and lesser-known gems.

Five Things You May Not Know About Me:

  1. I have a doctorate in organ performance from Juilliard. I've performed in America, Europe, and Australia.
  2. I teach organ, harpsichord, and theory at Wright State University in Fairborn.
  3. I recently purchased a home in one of Dayton's beautiful historic districts – just a few minutes' walk to the station!
  4. I love to write and I'm lucky enough to provide program and liner notes for several well-known performers and institutions.
  5. I've seen every episode of The Simpsons to date.
