Design polyphony is a process of listening-to and creating-with. In music, polyphony signifies many voices sounding simultaneously in a composition. However, voices may not always harmonize – countermelodies, dissonances, and tensions arise to make a richer musical journey.

I design in polyphony, prioritizing relationship-building and amplifying narratives that are often silenced by dominant systems. My work is informed by research into urban ecologies, sound culture, and power dynamics.

A transdisciplinary creative with a critical ear, I draw from my backgrounds in music, cognition, sound engineering, and design research to create media and social experiences that orient us towards more equitable and poetic futures. 
Design Principles

Polyphony – attentive to harmful dissonances, yet strengthened by the beauty of tensions.

Curiosity – asking, listening, observing, and willing to let go of preconceived ideas as alternate narratives are shared.

Heart – engaging in my work with compassion and conviction.
