6. Multimedia Projects

2017 - Present
Music, Video, Photography


I started playing the violin when I was seven years old. I play violin in multiple local bands, play guitar, violin, and sing in my own band, and write and record violin solos and freelance compositions.


Spoils is my band and personal creative project that I work on with my three friends. I write our lyrics and music and contribute to instrument arrangements. I also create all of the artwork associated with the band, including album art, merch, and print zines.

Audiotree Live Performance - The Ophelias
In 2019, I traveled cross-country with The Ophelias as their touring violinist, beginning at the Treefort Music Fest in Boise, Idaho, traveling across the US, and ending our tour in Chicago, Illinois, where we performed on Audiotree Live. Audiotree is “an American music record label that records and publishes live music sessions”.
