The first part of my dissertation is the original music written for this dissertation, which consists of tonal music that describes my life’s journey.

The piece is entitled “Epic Beginnings.” Originally, it was named “The Last Dance ...

MFA Thesis Exhibit Catalogs

Today’s rapid advances in algorithmic processes are creating and generating predictions through common applications, including speech recognition, natural language (text) generation, search engine prediction, social media personalization, and product recommendations.
