My professional training took place at The Juilliard School and Oberlin Conservatory. Lois Wann, James Caldwell, Bert Lucarelli and Virginia Brewer influenced me the most, with mentorships that continued well into my adulthood. I spent the first half of my career in corporate management roles, gathering skills that I would later find very helpful as a small business owner. I enjoyed an extraordinary musical life without the burdens that sometimes come from making from live performance- though I have played semi-professionally in orchestras and ensembles throughout the metro New York area. In 2007 I took a pivot in my life, and established Magic Reed to concentrate on professional oboe reed making. I love my work, enjoy my lifestyle, and have never looked back. I feel privileged to be able to contribute to the achievement of whatever dreams you may have as an oboist. I know from experience, that great oboe reeds are essential to getting there.
