I am a composer working in both acoustic and electronic media. I’m particularly interested in working collaboratively with performers to create music shaped by their individual musical personae. These collaborations, as well as those with artists from various disciplines, have led to musical works incorporating visual art, poetry, dance, acting, and improvisation.
