Title: The Grief Manuscript

Role: Director, Video Editor/Producer, Composer, Stop-motion 

Date: March 2021

Title: Idealism

Role: Composer, Producer, Performer & Recording Engineer

Date: June 2021

Location: Tucson, Arizona

“Idealism” is from my solo EP “Etudes”  a collection of acoustic-electric songs that is in itself an étude in which each piece is a production exercise implementing a different musical technique. The collection also seeks ways in which we might find catharsis and overcome narratives of our younger selves.


Title: ANTI/body: There in the Distance

Role: Audio Producer, Composer

Date: June 2021

Location: Tucson, Arizona

ANTI/body is a site specific installation event in multiple locations around Tucson and an emergent collaboration between the Tucson Art+Feminism Collective and local artist Natalie Brewster Nguyen.


ANTI/body is a social response to the pandemic crisis and a springboard for creation; Nguyen has invited local artists to respond to a broad spectrum of inquiries linking to the guiding theme of this year’s Art+Feminism Campaign, Art+Activism. The artists are all women/trans/non-binary/queer/POC artists whose work crosses genres and mediums. They are collectively using this moment to demonstrate the incredible adaptability and relevance of art in hard times.
