I have been studying music my entire life, and people. The mix of both passions have urged me to utilize musical expression in ways to evoke moods and atmospheres conducive to a particular subject matter or environment.
Through the use of the violin as my primary, and other instruments in a supportive manner, I create songs, loops, and melodies, to fit the needs of the listener or other creators I may collaborate with.
I am a novice film creator having recently created and published an hour + digital commentary, on the origin of race theory, eugenics, colonialism, and how the affects have directed the course of our planet and local area of Cincinnati. The project was inspired and supported by ArtsWave and the Truth and Reconciliation Project of 2021.
Working with various private and corporate enterprises, I continue to push my limits in use of genre and sound to expand creativity, influence and reception of music in its many forms and expressions
In addition to traditional and contemporary styles, I also teach to pass the knowledge and love of music to the next generations.
