artist statement

my work as an artist percussionist and curator is fuelled by a desire to synthesize diverse concepts, genres, and art forms— creating inclusive programs, concert experiences, and events.

influenced by medieval chant as much as pop culture (and everything in between) i strive to expose new audiences to “classical music”.

i acknowledge and respect tradition, frequently performing works by classical and contemporary masters; simultaneously, i attempt to create a new, more personal syntax for my artistic practice through improvisation and collaboration.
