Ciao! I am a junior music composition major at Temple, originally hailing from the Lehigh Valley - not too far from Philly. I'm an Honors student, and I dabble in web design and programming when I have free time. I play violin, piano, and a little bit of mandolin, but my primary occupation is learning to score soundtracks for video games. My music has been quite directly inspired by some of the Italian masters, especially Ottorino Respighi, so what better place to study music than in the Eternal City, where he lived and taught? I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to live and study in a place so saturated in musical history and culture as Rome, and am genuinely excited to see how the experience transforms my perspectives and my work!
