Hello! I'm Jaren.

I compose and perform music. I also publish writings on the intersection of philosophy and the arts.

I'm based in Berkeley, California, where I live in a charming housing cooperative I helped found.

I work as a freelance musician, and as a composer / sound designer with many of the Bay Area's leading arts organizations. I also provide teaching services to after-school programs, and through my private studio.

This site is for your enjoyment! Please say hello through the "Contact" page :)
