I perform and compose contemporary jazz piano, as well as some classical music. I am classically trained, having studied with pianist Gloria Cheng and composer Miguel del Aguila. My writing combines inspiration from jazz greats such as Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock with modern influences from smooth jazz, pop, and folk music.
