Greetings! I teach in the Department of Musicology at the Frost School of Music and also serve as Associate Dean of the Office of Academic Enhancement for Undergraduate Affairs at the University of Miami. I am also a faculty affiliate of UMiami's Center for Global Black Studies.
My scholarly writing centers on music, identity, and religion in the Caribbean and the United States. I also tour and record as a saxophonist with Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band and many other artists.
