I am currently residing in Los Angeles, however, I do visit Europe for my concerts, festivals, masterclasses, and workshops regularly. So I hope you do not mind skipping a week or two In November and January.
Teaching is one of the most rewarding activities for me. I have taught professional and non-professional musicians for over 6 years and I still enjoy sharing my passion with people.
I have been composing since I was 12 years old. My music has been performed by professional ensembles and musicians such as Kairosquartett, Ensemble Recherche, Austrian Ensemble for New Music, New Art and Music Ensemble Salzburg, Mozarteum Institute for New Music Ensemble and others in Asia, Europe and North America.
My main focus is contemporary classical concert music, as well as music-theater and electronic music. Recently I am working on projects using extended media such as photography.
