I am an American composer and multi-instrumentalist who explores new mediums, forms, and performance practices. In my work, sonic and expressive parameters may be indeterminate or highly organized, time may be governed or lawless, and tuning may be fluid or fixed.
My compositions have been performed by Del Sol String Quartet, Ghost Ensemble, Gamelan Pacifica, Corigliano String Quartet, Ensemble Audax, James Moore and Andie Springer, andPlay, William Winant Percussion Ensemble, UCSC Experimental Ensemble, Cornish College Guitar Quartet, among others.
As a multi-instrumentalist, I have performed at a variety of festivals and venues across the United States and Canada including the REDCAT in LA, Art Basel in Miami, the Fusebox Festival in Austin, Club PuSh in Vancouver, B.C., Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland, the Chapel Performance Space in Seattle, the Time Based Arts Festival in Portland, among others. My recent performance projects have involved refretted guitars in just intonation tunings systems, including those in systems of my own devising.
I received a BM in music composition from Cornish College of the Arts (2013) and a MA in music composition from the University of California Santa Cruz (2019).
