I am currently a doctoral student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I study music composition. I typically find slow music not so interesting, so most of my music tends to be very rhythmic and energetic. I also make music with the assistance of a computer.


Life at the University of Illinois is full of opportunities and fun. I've been a teaching assistant, teaching music theory and aural skills since I arrived in Urbana. I am also the system administrator of a computer music lab, Computer Music Project, and a research assistant developing computer software. Besides taking classes and working, I am also a member of UI Steel Band and UI Gamelan Ensemble and perform constantly. In addition to being a instrumentalist, I also conduct. I'm the artistic director of a new music chamber group, TV Buddha. This group is founded in 2010 and has actively performed new music in Champaign-Urbana Area.
