From 1996 through 2021, I was the Associate Director of the UC Berkeley Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT), a leading research and training laboratory focused on the creative interaction between music and science. I was also Executive Director of the Eco Ensemble, UC Berkeley’s professional new music chamber group dedicated to contemporary music by emerging and established composers. I have over 20 years experience in arts management and specialize in fundraising, project management, marketing and organizational development. My research and teaching interests include arts entrepreneurship principles and practices in the U.S. and abroad, the creation of modern cultural policies in the U.S. and France, the intersection of government arts policy and arts management/arts practice, and the impact of public/private support for the arts. I have developed and taught courses at UC Berkeley, the LEAP/Arts Management program at Colorado State University, the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI), the UC Paris Study Center and the American University of Paris (AUP). I have presented workshops and lectures at the Savannah College of Art and Design, the Institute for American Universities, Parsons Paris, Arcadia University, San Francisco State University (SFSU), the University of San Francisco (USF), the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne and the Université Côte d'Azur (UCA).
