I began singing and composing Sacred Harp music in 1996, in my first year at Oberlin College (Oberlin, OH).

Two of my tunes are included in The Sacred Harp, Revised Cooper Edition (2012). My compositions have also appeared in The Shenandoah Harmony (2013), The New Millennium Harp (2001), Oberlin Harmony (2002), and The Trumpet. Several of my arrangements in Sacred Harp style of English village carols are included in the 3rd (2009) edition of An American Christmas Harp.
