Author: Stringless Artist

By choice, I started studying music when I was in the 5th grade. Not by choice, I was assigned to play sax. Through high school, I exercised self-agency and learned to play clarinet, flute, and cello in pursuit of orchestra. After playing flute for only a year-and-a-half, I was accepted into the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati where I studied under one of the world's leading professors of flute performance. After CCM, I pursued architecture at the University of Nevada Las Vegas where I won two international design competitions: Leading Edge and Walt Disney Imagineering. Before getting my bachelor's in music, I also won the UNLV concerto competition on flute. Post graduation, I went on to work for a global architecture firm (Archurban) in mainland China, and back in the states, I wrote my first electronic music album (P A X M A X). Missing music performance, I decided to revisit cello. I received further training at the Nevada School of the Arts and the Multnomah Arts Center, and I played cello in the Beaverton Symphony Orchestra for two seasons. During that time, I invented a stringless platform for learning the violin (the bracket violin). This event--without pause--was the most significant pivot in my life! While in pursuit of patents, I developed conceptual, technological designs for stringless electronic training aids and musical instruments (beyond structural models), or more specifically, stringless controllers/synthesizers for advancing pedagogy, furthering artistic capabilities, and real-time electronic music making. Looking to make a professional fingerprint with my inventions, I took courses in "Leading Innovation in Arts and Culture" and "Teaching the Violin and Viola" respectively at Vanderbilt and Northwestern Universities (via Coursera). I also have had multiple "Stringless Technology" exhibits at the NoCo Mini Maker Faire and Violin Society of America, taught violin at the Boys and Girls Club, developed therapy applications through volunteer hospice and palliative care, give free private music instruction, and performed/appeared on the stringless violin at Make Music Day Denver, Apogaea, Sloan's Lake Rehab, Denver Gay Pride, and Suncrest Hospice. I also have auditioned to be on TEDx MileHigh, was recently interviewed for my ProBoPat Success Story, and am currently working on a targeted prototyping/beta testing/business plan (with SCORE Colorado).
