I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and attended the University of Virginia and University of Chicago before completing a PhD in musicology from Princeton University. Prior to my doctoral studies I worked for five years in the development office at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and I currently work as Director of Individual Gifts at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
As contingent faculty I taught classes at Princeton University, Columbia University, and Stanford University and am active as a lecturer and writer for arts organizations including the the San Francisco Ballet and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
I’m the translator (German to English) of Laurenz Lütteken’s Music of the Renaissance (University of California Press) and the author of Balanchine and Kirstein’s American Enterprise (Oxford University Press).
