Plus/Minus is a flute and percussion duo with myself and Dustin Donahue. We began playing together in 2008 as featured artists at the soundSCAPE festival in Pavia, Italy, but have only recently formalized our duo. Our projects include commissioned works, "Duo for Flute and Percussion" by Yvonne Wuinvasive species/a by Kurt Isaacson and a performance of Open Works at Mengi in Reykjavik, Iceland. 

Future projects include a world premiere of Stuart Saunders Smith's Heartland, a performance of John Fonville's Striae at the National Flute Convention in San Diego, CA in August of 2016, as well as a performance of explorative unconventional score realizations.
