This time I’m gonna get it right


It’s an indescribable honor for me to join my inspiring colleagues Etienne Charles, Steve Lehman, and George Lewis (and many others besides, in many disciplines) as a 2015 Guggenheim Fellow.

It is also my great privilege to be the recipient of a 2015 Doris Duke Artist Award alongside such exceptional and influential musicians: Steve ColemanMuhal Richard Abrams, Ambrose Akinmusire, Okkyung Lee, and Yosvany Terry.

I am grateful beyond measure — especially to all of my comrades in the Society — and will strive to make the most of this exceptional opportunity.
