Enlightenment is my first (and currently only) stone sculpture. I spent over 600 hours and 6 months creating it!
My Box of Mirrors is a performance structure I designed and built to accompany a song of mine called "Mirrors", which uses the infinite reflections of a box of mirrors as a metaphor for identity. The box has six one-way mirror panels that create infinite reflections visible from the outside. The panels fold down to let the person inside the box step out.
Here's a short video clip of my performance at Bing Concert Hall (Stanford University):
This a selection of some of my photographs. I'm a novice with lots to learn, but I hope you enjoy them!
The fArtism website is the best source for this, but as a brief introduction:
I played violin in orchestras throughout my youth, including the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra (MYSO) and the Stanford Symphony Orchestra. MYSO runs a competition called the John Downey Creation Project that allows young composers to write works to be premiered by MYSO ensembles. Reverie is a piece for full orchestra I wrote as a John Downey fellow. It was premiered by MYSO's Senior Symphony in 2014.
Here's a video of the premiere:
As my entry for the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge (a national youth science competition), I lead a team of four students to educate 275 local fourth-graders about renewable energy.
The first part of Green Education was a presentation about wind, hydroelectric, and solar power. To make this fun and entertaining, we added demonstrations using a small windmill, a simple water turbine, and a solar panel wired to a fan. But we went a step further to leave a lasting impression on each school we visited.
