SG Tape 01
Beginning in September 2015, I, alongside one of my peers, have conducted and managed a full service venue and multimedia exhibition space with live audio and video production, offering our audiences specially curated performances from up and coming artists in a variety of styles. With the oversaturation of artists in the Boston area and the insufficient amount of viable performance spaces, we are undertaking the responsibility of supporting the community of artists we are around, and in turn, developing the brand name "Steady Grounds." With each artist that comes by, the space is aesthetically designed to the artist's liking. The audio from each performance is recorded, and later on that audio is synced to a video of the night that is created by Emerson film students. As of today, we have conducted 20 shows and produced 14 videos.

Berklee Popular Music Institute
Dorm Sessions 12 Preview | Dorm Sessions 12 Release Party
In Fall 2016, I had the honor to be a part of the newly instated Berklee Popular Music Institute, or for short, BPMI. This was following an application and interview process in which the 18 current members were chosen out of a pool close to 100. BPMI is a three semester course, under the instruction of Professors Jeff Dorenfeld and Jeff Appruzese, providing students with the practical and analytical skills needed to develop a successful touring act. From the large pool of artists attending Berklee, we have selected 7 standout acts to cultivate and develop until our final semester in the program, Summer 2017, in which we each of the artists to a major music festival in North America. In addition to the responsibility of developing an assigned artists, BPMI had the opportunity to attend the Billboard Touring Conference and Awards this past November in Los Angeles. Our class was able to learn from and interact with industry professionals, gaining connections and insight on the contemporary music industry. During the conference, I had the opportunity to speak with Kanye West / Justin Bieber manager, Scooter Braun, about potential speaking opportunities at Berklee. I was thrilled to hear he was supportive of the idea, and I am currently working with my professors and Scooter's team to set up a visiting date in the near future.

'concept. Knife' Music Video
Island Ephemera is an experimental electronic project between myself and Sean Dellecave. Between the months of October 2014 to May 2015, we composed and recorded our first full length album "Fade of Face." This process included mapping out the framework of each track through midi, and later sampling from our collection of synthesizers, organic drums, and field recordings. Following the release of our album, Emerson student Jon Denton created an excellent visual to complement our song "concept. Knife."

Bootleg Series Vol. 1
In December 2015, I joined an experimental free jazz group named "Bald Uakari." The group is led by fellow Berklee student, Greg McCrae, who composed the music as well. The music is defined by meditations in various ostinatos and the integration of electronic and organic sounds. The instrumentation of the group is as follows: drums, trumpet, guitar, bass, electronic sampler, and myself on vibes. We performed sets at various house venues and Berklee Recital Halls and have future performances slated at other Boston local venues.
