Summmer 2015 UpdatesI have accepted a faculty position at the University of Georgia Hodgson School of Music, and am thrilled to be joining such a talented community of musicians and artists. I will begin my gig as Assistant Professor of Composition and Director of the Dancz Center for New Music in August. Go Bulldogs!
Current ProjectsI'm finishing up Chamber Symphony, for my friends at EQ Ensemble, with the generous support of the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition. I'm also writing a new electroacoustic piece for Transient Canvas. Both pieces will be premiered this Fall.
The Composers Now organization has nominated two composers -myself and Jin Hi Kim- for the 2nd annual Composers Now Creative Residencies.
