Back Pocket Duo

My duo with pianist Annie Jeng  is committed to presenting thoughtful and engaging performances, focusing primarily on the music of living composers. Our most recent work has been focused around The Empathy Project, a multi-media performance centered around using new music and art as a vehicle for discussing and fostering empathy.  Visit us at for upcoming performances and to learn a little more about us!



Creating new music is a way for me to express the random musical ideas I have floating around in my head. Often those fragments float infinitely, never quite developing into a format which can be performed. The ones that do make it down on paper can be properly shared with audiences. This is the core of my music making/writing philosophy, that what I produce can be shared and can mean something personal to someone else the same way it does to me.
