WHO ARE YOU ? WHAT DO YOU DO ?



I am a sound artist with a focus on project-based sound and visual media for public engagement and live performance.


I have toured nationally in the US and internationally, performing at art museums, galleries, cultural centers, town halls, youth centers, shelters, public schools, public libraries, local and international music and contemporary art festivals and gallery spaces.


I have given artist & diversity talks at Riletta Twyne Cream Family School in Camden, New Jersey for a 2nd grade class - Germain Tillon High School in île-de-France - and a performance with a question & answer segment for a permanent housing shelter for elderly facing homelessness or domestic violence, in Brest, France.



WHAT INFORMS YOUR WORK ?



My family and i moved every 1-2 years due to health issues facing my parents and two siblings. I have never lived in one home for more than 2 years my entire life. As a child, i attended a total of 7 different schools, and have lived in 6 different countries as an adult. Currently, i am based in Albania.


I am second generation American, Haïtian-Filipino (Jeanjacques-Ongsingco) and Puerto Rican (Córdova-Alarcón). I was born in the Mohave Desert, Mohave County, Arizona - 17 FEBRUARY 1984 - the sun in Aquarius cusp Pisces - Sagittarius rising - moon in Virgo - Venus in Capricorn - Mars in Scorpio - North Node in Gemini - Chiron in Taurus - non binary - 5'7" (175 cm) - 120 lbs (55 kg)



WHAT ARE YOUR INTENTIONS AS AN ARTIST ? DOES YOUR WORK REFLECT A SPECIFIC MESSAGE ?



I want to offer inspiration towards the maturing of our societies.


I think there is a common thread in all of my work which speaks to the challenges of manipulative, oppressive, social governing and policing systems.
