How did you hear about TŌN? What inspired you to apply?

A friend of mine who is an alum of the program had great things to say about TŌN! I found the emphasis placed on connecting to contemporary audiences to be very much in line with my personal artistic goals.

If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing?

I would most likely have pursued a career in environmental conservation and sustainability. My current career goals still include using music as a way to raise awareness and funding for environmental causes.
