She started her life in audio at Dartmouth College, focusing on sound installations, live-media programming, and electronic instrument building. At the Thayer School of Engineering, she taught musical audio principles to engineers and programmable fabrication techniques to artists. In 2016, she produced an interactive audio tour for Museum Hack that was featured in the San Francisco Modern Museum of Art reopening. From 2015 to 2018, Rebecca was a sound designer for Charles Morrow Productions and composed for the installation Laura Poitras: Astro Noise at the Whitney Museum of American Art. As an audio engineer for Soundscape Productions in Boston, Rebecca recorded and edited several audiobooks and podcasts, deepening her appreciation and understanding of voiceover production techniques. In 2018, Rebecca moved to Los Angeles to pursue an MFA in Composition and Experimental Sound Practices from the California Institute of the Arts. At CalArts, she focused on composition and sound design for video games, animation, and non-linear, interactive performance. She is currently the technical director for This Way Out Radio, an audio engineer for John Marshall Media, and a composer who is very happy to have returned to New York City for the foreseeable future. Over the pandemic, Rebecca received the most joy from her adoption of a small, terrier/chihuahua mix named Princess Queso.
