Biography

I am a composer, multidisciplinary artist, and arts administrator based in New York City. I currently work as the Operations Assistant at the New York Philharmonic. I received my Bachelor of Music in Computer Music Composition and a minor in Business of Music at The Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.

I studied classical voice with Stephen Totter at Carnegie Mellon University's Precollege program and the Pittsburgh CLO Academy. In high school, I participated in several district and regional honors choral festivals for choral performance through the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA).

I experiment with an amalgam of digital audio processing techniques and sound synthesis, often exemplifying my interest in storytelling and theater through the use of recorded sounds and spoken word in my music. I have a keen interest in merging the dynamic of self-produced artists with their own creative and monetary success directly. My experience as a minority in the classical music field has driven me to pursue and establish an uplifting community for women/non-binary people of color and other minorities in the field of music technology through my passion for research, representation, and accessibility within the music industry.
