I am an author, ethnomusicologist, performing musician, and educator currently living in Brooklyn, New York. I grew up on the end of a dirt road in rural northern Vermont, just south of the French Canadian border.
After earning a PhD in Musicology from Cornell University in 2018, I left academia to pursue public intellectualism: a practical application of the theoretical training I received during the course of my education.
I speak Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. Having lived in Japan on-and-off for four cumulative years (and counting), I am also dedicated to bridging socio-cultural gaps through music, teaching, and writing. My activities have been supported by the Fulbright Foundation, MTV, and the US Department of State, among other institutions.
