I joined Local 802 after getting some work opportunities through the union. I hope to continue meeting wonderful people and making music with the support of the union. I recently returned from a three-week artist residency in Melbourne, Australia, with an experimental trio called Chaos Hands (visual projections, electronics and drums). The time and space were such a luxury, but I’m thankful to return to this inspiring city. I grew up in Miami and then relocated to Ann Arbor, where I studied percussion and jazz at the University of Michigan. It was there that I began to explore collaborating with dancers and multimedia artists, both of which inform a lot of my current work.
