I'm a composer, I take my version of the world and turn it into music. I'm also very Lebanese, which makes me an outsider in this part of the world. Being a minority in the music business is not easy. If you're looking to increase diversity in the arts, you know that it's an uphill battle.

Perhaps you're a person of color who is looking for artwork by people like them, music that expresses our day to day struggles. Maybe you're an ally looking for ways you can better help move the art world forward. Maybe you're just looking for awesome music and insightful writing. Either way, welcome to the family. 

I love making music, my portfolio is like a Journal of raw, unfiltered emotion. But I've learned to love writing too, and writing gives me a practical journal, a witness to the injustices I and many of my peers face as musicians of color.

I hope you take a look at my music, my writing, my art; if you like what you hear, please consider joining. Here's just a little snippet of what my patrons get: 

- Priority access to all music recordings
- Regular blog posts, essays, and think pieces, usually relating to race, gender, and other marginalized orientations in the classical music world. 
- A composition tutorial 
- A memoir
- Sheet music
- Electronic Music
- Electronic and possibly chiptune arrangements of my favorite music
- Discounts and free merchandise 
- A community of wonderful people 

I'm honored to have the privilege of sharing something deep, personal, and emotional with you. I would like to thank my friends, family, and patrons for their constant love. I believe together we can make the world a better place through creating, sharing, and talking about our art. We would love to have you in our community.
