Audio Engineer

I have over 13 years of professional experience in audio and production, including as front-of-house engineer and sound designer for national and international music festivals and multimedia venues. My “unofficial career” started in high school with a single radio show episode edited in Cool Edit Pro. I have since served as an audio engineer in multiple venues and institutions, including as a graduate fellow and staff technician at the Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia (CEMI) from 2013 to 2017, helping produce hundreds of multimedia concerts, talks, and events. I have taught music composition and audio technology at the college level since 2012. My audio courses cover topics ranging from audio fundamentals and recording techniques, to sound synthesis and interactive video game music.

From 2019 to 2022, I worked as audio reinforcement technical director at the University of North Texas’ College of Music, focusing on jazz big bands, combos, and vocal ensembles. Currently, I freelance as location recording engineer, and work as technical director & manager for the Margo Jones Performance Hall, a historic venue built in 1922, part of the Texas Woman's University School of the Arts & Design.
