Music Composition and Technology
Magis Grant Album Project
As a recipient of The Magis Grant, I was able to complete an independent album. This project expanded upon the principles and foundations learned in my various music theory classes and through my participation in the Fairfield University Jazz Ensemble. Throughout the duration of this project I learned new techniques and approaches to composing and capturing music as a sound engineer.

I was hired to perform in this video of “Jazz Standards” as part of a promotional campaign for Fairfield University. The trio performed live for the cocktail hour at the fundraising event and then our video was displayed on a large projection screen during dinner.
