About me

I am a lecturer at Ithaca College, where I teach music history, theory, organ, and harpsichord. My musicological work focuses of J. S. Bach and extends to compositional process, apprenticeship, and issues of borrowing and authorship in the early modern period (1400–1800). As an organist and harpsichordist, I specialize in early music and do a lot of work as an improviser, arranger, and composer of completions of historical fragments.

I am the director of music and organist at Immaculate Conception Church in Ithaca, New York and a lay Catholic campus minister at Cornell and Ithaca College.

I am also a freelance editor.
