Playing the electric harp


I've been playing the harp for about 15 years. I currently play a Lyon & Healy "Silhouette," a fully electric lever harp.

I built an electric violin as part of a music engineering course at Caltech (EE/Mu 107). The construction details and some sound samples are available here.

Art & Animation

I was a member of the LineStorm Animation Consortium at MIT. Here are two of our animated science shorts that can be viewed on YouTube:

Newton's Three Laws of Motion
Newton's Law of Gravity

I did a lot of the art and design work for the 2015 MIT Mystery Hunt, which can be seen here.


I enjoy swimming and I am a NAUI-certified scuba diver.
