Bergamot Quartet is fueled by a passion for exploring and advocating for the music of living composers, continually expanding the limits of the string quartet’s rich tradition in western classical music. With a priority given to music by women, they aim to place this new, genre-bending music in meaningful dialogue with the histories that precede it with creative programming, community-oriented audience building, and frequent commissioning.

Peabody LAUNCHPad &
Professional Studies Faculty
Peabody LAUNCHPad helps students and recent alumni forge satisfying, successful careers. As a staff member at LAUNCHPad, I support students and recent alumni in their career pursuits through professional skills coaching, grant program management, and curricular support for Professional Studies Department courses. Also an Adjunct Lecturer in the department, I teach the core classes Building a Brand & Portfolio and Pitching Your Creative Idea, where students develop skills such as creating professional materials, networking, negotiation, and grant writing.
Writing & Editing
I have always loved words. Reading and writing are a core part of my life and artistic practice, and I’m happy to be able to share some recent projects.
As a writer for The Jazz Gallery’s blog, Jazz Speaks, I get to talk with remarkable performers leading up to their shows at the Gallery. Topics have ranged from composition processes and collaboration to coffee culture and the visual arts, and it’s always a pleasure to hear from these musicians! Read interviews by myself and other Gallery writers at the link below.
The Path to Funding
At Peabody LAUNCHPad, I edited our new book, The Path to Funding, based on coursework developed at Peabody Conservatory. Written by my colleagues Zane Forshee, Christina Manceor, and Robin McGinness, The Path to Funding is a free, open-access book that dives into project development and ideation, grant writing, and more.

A Message of Inclusion, A History of Exclusion
As a Peabody student, I wrote a paper and created an online exhibit exploring the Peabody Institute’s legacy of racism and exclusion as a recipient of the Hugh Hawkins Research Fellowship for the Study of Hopkins History. A Message of Inclusion, A History of Exclusion: Racial Injustice at the Peabody Institute can be found on the Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries and Museums website below.
