A native of Beaverton, Oregon, I have been a listener of All Classical Portland since I started playing the flute eleven years ago. Coming from a family of non-musicians, the station served for me as an invaluable introduction into to the world of classical music. Since then, I’ve further fueled my love for this art through participation in the Portland Youth Philharmonic and various ensembles throughout my time in college. I recently graduated from the University of Puget Sound, where I received degrees in Flute Performance and Biology. I am currently taking a gap year to apply to a Masters of Music program in Flute Performance.

My goal is to become a professional musician and an active supporter of the arts in my community. That being said, I am inspired by All Classical’s mission to engage with local and global audiences in ways that support and create cultural community, especially through programs such as Thursdays at Three, Northwest Previews, and upcoming JOY Project programs. I am grateful to be learning from the All Classical team about the work that goes into operating a non-profit arts organization and delving into the world of radio broadcasting.

Classical music has opened up many doorways of listening for me, and I am passionate about the power of sound to inspire, console, and connect us to the experiences of other people. The medium of radio, in particular, appeals to me both as a science and an art. Last spring, I had the opportunity to take a Music Recording Techniques course, where I learned the basics of recording, mixing, and mastering music. During this time I also served as the editor-in-chief of my university’s student-run science magazine, Elements, where I we aspired to communicate student research and science news in a way that was informative and accessible across the campus. I look forward to bringing together my previous experiences in audio production, writing, and communication to this internship and learning more about community engagement, social media management, fundraising, and more.
