I am a composer, improviser, vocalist, and visual artist. I create visceral works that emphasize timbre and intimacy while exposing the vulnerable and violent nature of the human spirit. My work extends from the American experimental music tradition and exists in the space between diverse artistic practicescomposition, painting, vocal performance, performance art, sound/abstract poetry, and movement.
I am a Lecturer in Music Composition and Theory, and Director of Contemporary Music Ensemble at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I was recently a Visiting Artist at Rochester Institute of Technologys Fine Arts Printmaking Department (NY); a guest Lecturer and Performance Artist at Artist Proof Gallery (Canada); and am currently a Guest Vocal Artist with Wild Space Dance Company (WI).
