I received my PhD in musicology from Princeton University in 2014. My primary research concerns American modernist expression, with a focus on the composers and artists surrounding choreographer George Balanchine in the 1930s and 40s. I’ve also published on the Metropolitan Opera’s “Live in HD” broadcast initiative and have contributed to the forthcoming Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism.
Prior to my graduate studies, I worked for five years in the Development Office of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, for the last two as Manager of Development for the National Symphony Orchestra, where I oversaw a $10 million annual fundraising campaign.
In February 2012 I was co-organizer, along with Caryl Emerson and Simon Morrison, of the international conference “After the End of Music History” in honor of musicologist Richard Taruskin, and in May 2013 was co-organizer of the interdisciplinary symposium “The Agon of Opera and Dance,” also at Princeton.
