She was additionally awarded the 2022 Composition Competition Residency with the NYU O1 Symphony Orchestra, with her composition entitled Derivation, based upon the inspiration of modern female composers. 

She has orchestrated on projects including the Emmy nominated song “All About Me”, from the television series The L Word Generation QThe Woman King (2022), and HBO’s The Edge of the Earth (2022) as a member of the Los Angeles based score preparation and orchestration company, Joy Music House.
