A Professional Performer
I began my instrumental music studies in the public schools here in Phoenix. I earned a Bachelor's of Music Education and a Masters in Violin Performance from the Indiana University (Jacobs) School of Music, where I also studied the harp. I have been a member of the Phoenix and Tucson Symphony Orchestras and the Sinfonia da Camera in Urbana, Illinois.
I currently serve as the Principal 2nd Violin for the Arizona Opera Orchestra. As an active chamber music player, I am the 1st Violinist with Quartet Sabaku and perform and record with the early music ensemble, Musica Dolce.
I am a member of Professional Musicians of Arizona (AFM Local 586), Chamber Music America, and Early Music America.
