My compositions have been performed all the way in Cambridge, England, and closer to home throughout the Upper Midwest. Some recent collaborations have been with VocalEssence, Fargo-Moorhead Choral Artists, and Tactus.


Justice Choir has published my song, "A Bridge is Stronger Than a Wall," in their inaugural songbook! Justice Choir is a vibrant, hope-filled movement--and if you love singing for justice, you can be part of it!
Listen to the song here (at 27:42) 

VocalEssence gave "The Gift to Sing" its world premiere at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis on February 19th, 2017. The work was commissioned by VocalEssence ReMix, conducted by G. Phillip Shoultz III, and uses the uplifting poem written by James Weldon Johnson.

"The Peace of Wild Things" is now published by Santa Barbara! Featured in the Matthew and Michael Culloton Choral Series, the words of Wendell Berry are lovingly set. Hear, peruse and purchase the score here
