Oregon Connection: As a PhD student in composition and Graduate Teaching Fellow for my department, I was actively involved in planning events for the Oregon Composers Forum. Through OCF, I was  involved with such ensembles as the Eugene Contemporary Composers Ensemble (ECCE), Sospiro Vocal Ensemble, and the Tai Hei Ensemble. I also served as artistic director of the Ambrosia Ensemble (vocal).
