I am a forward-thinking Composer, Visual Artist and STEAM-Educator.
Through my work in all three areas, I build bridges by connecting histories.
In a classroom, my strengths are creating simple workflows that engage students by providing information through first hand connection with a host of substantial artists from various disciplines.
The (2) American Artforms that have influenced me the most are Jazz and Hip Hop. Both are heavily centered around repurposing, re-contextualizing and improvisation.
These tools help me to inform, empower and engage in way that is impactful.
