Freestyle Production Expert
Music Editor & Choreographer
I bring a diverse background in music and dressage to the art of freestyle music editing. My music education gives me the skill to edit music which is second to none.
I hold a BS in music from the University of Vermont and MM from UMass Amherst where I acted as Assistant Director of Bands on a full fellowship. I taught flute at the University of Mobile for a number of years and played principal flute in their orchestra. I've performed as soloist with many ensembles, including the Magnolia Chamber Orchestra and the Baldwin Pops.
While in graduate school at UMass, I studied dressage with Susan Blinks and Sarah Geikie during their tenures as Director of Riding. Other important trainers include "S" dressage judge, Arlene Rigdon, and Dutch trainer, Jos Sevriens. I'm a graduate of the USDF "L" Education Program and judged dressage shows for many years. At my Woodwind Farm, I bred and trained Swedish Warmblood horses, taught dressage lessons, took horses in training, and hosted dressage competitions.
My skill in audio engineering was honed over more than 10 years producing freestyles with master engineer, Dr. David Durant.
