I grew up in Buenos Aires, then moved to Boston to study arranging and saxophone performance at the Berklee College of Music. I then spent four years in Los Angeles and New York before heading to the Bay Area for a Ph.D. in composition at UC Berkeley. While in grad school, I lived in Istanbul for one year (teaching at ITÜ MIAM), followed by two years studying in Paris as a recipient of UC Berkeley's Ladd Prize. I am now on the faculty at American University in Washington DC.
