I’ve served as the organist at St. Mark’s since 1993! I am also on the music department faculty of Santa Clara University. I studied organ performance at Stanford University, and in France and Austria. I performed internationally in prestigious venues such as Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the Leipzig Gewandhaus, National Cathedral in Washington DC, and the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. I’ve also performed and taught in Beijing, Taipei, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Jerusalem. A particular interest of mine is Latin American organ music. I received a Fulbright award to perform and conduct research in Brazil; since then I have performed in Mexico and edited three volumes of organ music by Mexican composers.
