My personal mission is to create meaningful experiences through events, workshops and conferences to help connect people with the resources they need to spark inspiration and make a positive differences in their lives and communities. Through consulting services, I have worked with a variety of non-profit organizations on programming and marketing strategies to help them bring their visions to life.
I have extensive experience producing and curating innovative programming intertwining multidisciplinary fields such as classical music, new music, world music, theater, dance, performance studies, visual arts, stage management, arts administration, cultural studies, women studies, Latinx studies, and Africana studies.
I served as Primary Investigator and Executive Director of Race Talks, an interdisciplinary virtual colloquium series aimed to foster nation-wide conversations on anti-racist advocacy through pedagogy, performance, and research. The series invigorated academic discourse and collaborations between Texas A&M University and peer institutions across the country including Brown University, University of California Berkeley, California State University, City University of New York, Cornell University, Northwestern University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Yale University.
In 2022, I directed the 2nd International Low Flutes Festival, assembling a comprehensive and compelling festival program devoted to promote classical music and emerging contemporary repertoire for low flutes. The festival offered lectures, concerts, workshops, interviews and gala concerts over a 4-day period. It featured world-leading artists in the low flute community and was attended by over 200 flutists of all skill levels from around the world.
