My work as a creative musician encompasses composition, improvisation, and collaboration with other artists. I started out my undergraduate education as a composition major in the School of Music at the University of Victoria, where I studied with John Abram, Martin Arnold, and Michael Longton. After following Rudolf Komorous to Simon Fraser University, I encountered Javanese gamelan, which set me on a more varied career path. Since completing my MA at Wesleyan University, while shifting my attention toward scholarship, I have continued to work with other composers. Most recently, I have pursued my long-standing interest in improvisation as a member of the Cornell Avant-Garde Ensemble (CAGE).
