i read (mostly voraciously)|i write (mostly here)||i play (mostly cello)

now for the real rundown…

I’m currently the general manager at Grammy-nominated roots and traditional music label Free Dirt Records. Previously I worked for Syntonic Research, the company founded by audio pioneer Irv Teibel, creator of the environments series which was the first publicly available psychoacoustic recording set. I recently produced an app of Teibel’s recordings with the archival label Numero Group.

I previously managed the day-to-day operations of major and independent label accounts at Furnace Manufacturing, the official vinyl pressing plant of Record Store Day.

Before that, I helped produce the Music@Menlo chamber music festival and collaborated on a variety of projects including social media and online promotion with Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, part of the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.

I graduated from St. Olaf College with degrees in music and media studies where I worked as a recording engineer and music director for KSTO Radio. During that time I interned with the American Composers Forum.

I play cello, bass, and other stringed stuff in a number of DC groups and have performed at The Kennedy Center’s “Millennium Stage,” Smithsonian Folklife Festival, National Museum of American History, and Black Cat.
