Jamming with Steve Vai
“Classical Gas” with Mason Williams
At a show in Eugene, Oregon I got to share the stage with legendary composer, comedian, writer and guitarist, Mason Williams including this version of Williams’ classic hit “Classical Gas.”
Brubecker (for “Tiny Desk Concert”)
Star Spangled Banner
The Ultra-Sonic Rock Orchestra invited me to recreate Jimi Hendrix’ iconic “Star Spangled Banner” for a July performance at the Regent Theater. Deconstructing Hendrix brilliant tone poem version of the national anthem and reinventing it on the harp was a chance to experience Hendrix genius in a way I’d never thought of before.
“I’ll Be Your Sous Chef, Baby”
In Residency at the Sensoria Festival of Literature & Arts
Minstrel & the Wild Harp
Symphony Soloist Clips
Behind the Scenes Movie

I Love My Garbageman
This piece for brass and percussion is my ode to one of the most important men in my life: my garbageman
My Solo in Seattle (on tour with Steve Vai)
This is a fan video of my solo during the Steve Vai “Story of Light” tour, taped in Seattle, during my solo in one of the nearly 100 shows I played with the incomparable Vai on his “Story of Light” world tour.
“My Vai Homework”
Before I went on tour with Steve Vai, I took an online course in his guitar techniques at Berklee School of Music’s Online School (yup, I took an electric guitar course on my harp). My goal wasn’t to learn how to play like Vai on the harp, but just to get inspiration from his work. This is one of my homework assignments.
Muchas Manos (with percussionist Robert Schulz)
Belinda (What a Lovely Tree)
Deepfelt thanks for this video to Arlington High School chorus teacher Cheryl Christo and videographer Mike Chvany.
The tree was destroyed early on Thanksgiving morning, soon after we recorded this.
