EducationPrinceton University '11
Rice University '13
I earned a Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Classics and a Certificate in Music Performance from Princeton University. I graduated cum laude in 2011, and was a University Scholar at Princeton from 2008-2011. I also hold a Master of Music from Rice University's Shepherd School of Music, having graduated with a 4.03 GPA. I had a full scholarship to Rice via the Jerry and Nanette Finger Foundation Prize and the Isidore and Helen Sacks Memorial Prize.
ExperienceLatin and Ancient Greek Tutor/substitute teacher, 5 years
I have been a tutor of Latin and Ancient Greek and a substitute Latin teacher for the past 5 years. I am a professional flutist and have been teaching flute lessons for 10 years, but Latin and Greek are my second passion, and I love keeping up my translating chops and passing on my love of the languages through teaching.
My Princeton thesis, titled "Dido and Aeneas: Two Works of Reception," discussed the relationship between Book IV of Virgil's Aeneid, Henry Purcell's opera "Dido and Aeneas," and Mark Morris' ballet of the same name. While working on my interdisciplinary thesis, I participated in a seminar co-taught by the renowned choreographer Mark Morris and music historian Simon Morrison, along with my normal course of Latin and Greek studies. My thesis advisor was Constanze Guthenke, who wrote "Placing Modern Greece: the Dynamics of Romantic Hellenism."
I especially enjoy modern works of art, literature, music and theater that utilize classical themes. While at Princeton, I took a seminar with Professor Guthenke and Cornell West, who teamed up to discuss the ties between the classical world and the history of African American culture. In my first year at Princeton, I was accepted into the Humanities Sequence, an intensive two-semester series of courses that covers 2,500 years of Western Civilization, including Western history, philosophy, and literature from antiquity to the 20th century. I also took a Freshman Seminar about modern reception of classical literature and art, sparking my interest in reception and interdisciplinary studies with a basis in Classics.
In high school, my SAT scores were 800 in Reading and Writing and 690 in Math. My AP scores were 5's in French Language and Culture, World History, European History, Music Theory, and Latin (both the Ovid and Catullus exam, which sadly no longer exists, and the Virgil exam); and 4's in Chemistry and Calculus AB.
HobbiesMy primary hobby is English-style horseback riding, specifically Eventing. I love working with horses as often as possible, and I hope to own a horse of my own one day. I also love cooking, reading, and hiking. I am the Principal Flutist of the Breckenridge Music Festival and enjoy spending my summers playing music and hiking in Colorado.
