She is an international prizewinning Filipino pianist whose repertoire ranges from the traditional classics to Hispanic and Southeast Asian music.  At home as a soloist and collaborative musician, she also incorporates dance, poetry, and the visual arts into her concerts.

Originally a Fulbright scholar from the Philippines, she has given concerts in five continents and was a prizewinner at the San Antonio International Piano Competition, among the top pianists of the Sydney International and Hilton Head Island International piano competitions, first prize winner of the Society for Musical Arts competition, two-time winner of the University of Michigan concerto competition, and first prize winner of numerous competitions in the Philippines.
