Associate Professor of Clarinet at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Principal Clarinetist for the Winston-Salem Symphony, Second and E-flat Clarinetist for the Eastern Music Festival. I am interested in authenticity, wholeness and true collaboration. Overall, my life and work is focused on empowering people toward self-actualization as leaders, artists, and human beings, and this passion has led me to Alexander Technique, nonviolence, and Buddhist techniques as practical means of reaching those goals. As Mahatma Gandhi said: “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” I passionately work on how to help people create the conditions for themselves where approaching that ideal is possible. I have developed this website because I am beginning to fully understand how my various interests cohere. As I get clearer about this for myself, I hope to pursue my goals with more passion, energy, and effectiveness.
