As an artist who has performed at numerous Los Angeles venues, I have composed and performed original music in the electronic, psychedelic, and experimental music genres with my band/art project Rollercoasterwater. This experience has given me an educational glimpse into these alternative musical cultures, as well as what the future of music will look like as it uses new technology and innovation.

I’ve interned at the charity/youtube organization Playing For Change which uses youtube monetization to fund the creation of music schools in third world countries, where I learned what it takes to work at in office for a successful company that revolves around its net presence. I was the lead usher for two years at the new Valley Performing Arts Center (VPAC) in Northrdige. I recently received my bachelors in Music Industry Studies at California State University, Northridge, which prepares students for both the business and performance aspects of the music industry. I have scored music for short films through Paradoxical Pictures as well as other production companies. I’m a skilled artist of 3D MAYA renderings and work for commissions. I’ve been an ASCAP, Writer Member since 2012.
