< musician | developer | educator >

Hi, I'm Kiara (she/her). I'm a classical oboist, web designer and developer, and educator.

I'm a fourth-year undergraduate BMus student at the University of Victoria majoring in musicology and sound studies with a minor in psychology. I'm passionate about accessibility and diversity in the arts and hope to use technology to make music performance spaces more accessible for neurodivergent artists.

I'm currently working as a UX designer for LifeCycles and the program coordinator for HighTechU.
