I work with lots of contemporary chamber ensembles in New York City. In the list below, I've included groups that I’m a member of, projects I’m working on, as well as chamber and solo repertoire that I am enthusiastic about, that help define me and what I do.

Please contact me for a CV or more information about any of the projects below.

Ensembles:

Wavefield Ensemble - a brand new group dedicated to performing new music and creating new artistic work. Our debut season includes performances at Carnegie, MANA Contemporary, and National Sawdust!

Hotel Elefant - a contemporary music ensemble dedicated to works of innovative, living composers.

OWEL - An indie band based in New Jersey. I play violin, keyboard, and sing background vocals.

seven)suns, on occasion - They’re named after apocalyptic Buddhist prophecy and play metal tunes on string quartet.

PROJECTS:

Diffusion Studies - a series of concerts where I explore music of the spatial variety (often broadly defined,) performed by myself and friends of mine. In some cases, I work with the electronics myself, because learning by doing is fun!

Filipino Music - I’m half Filipino. There’s a lot of music in Hawaii that I have been slowly scanning and picking through.
