She holds degrees from Stony Brook University (Ph.D.), Eastman School of Music (M.A.), and College of Charleston (B.A.).
Who I am:

I decided to apply for Fulbright because:
I applied for a Fulbright because I wanted to compose and study with Agata Zubel. I am also very interested in Polish music and wanted to immerse myself in the new music scene in order to learn about new composers and repertoire with which I might be unfamiliar.
After completing my Fulbright grant I would like to:
After completing my Fulbright, I will continue to compose, perform, and educate. I love to collaborate with artists from various fields, and I will continue to develop working relationships with artists whose work inspires me.
