Her distinctive approach to blending voice and five-string violin brings a unique dimension to her sound. She also performs regularly on hardanger d’amore, an instrument modeled after the traditional Norwegian hardanger fiddle, fully embracing the resonance and shimmering qualities of its sympathetic strings. She is currently involved in several musical projects ranging from the contemporary chamber ensemble Stratus Quartet to the ambient electro-acoustic duo visible worlds. Recent multidisciplinary collaborations include improvisatory performances with the Joffrey Ballet School and the experimental theatre group Exquisite Corpse Company. She has performed in various ensembles at festivals and venues across the United States and Europe, including the Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island and the Bern Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and has received artistic awards from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. She is a graduate of The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music and Eugene Lang College in New York and in the fall of 2019 will begin studies in Norway, supported by the US Fulbright Award.
