Welcome to my site! I am a performer and teaching artist that enjoys a varied carrier of teaching and stage, performing both classical and new music, and teaching young beginners through college aged students alike. I encourage versatility in students and lead through curiosity.
I am a registered Teacher Trainer for the Suzuki Association of the Americas, instructor of cello at Nazareth College and Binghamton University, and on the faculty at Ithaca Talent Education and Music Together of Ithaca.
I am fortunate to teach and perform across North America as a clinician, master class leader, adjudicator, soloist and chamber musician. I perform regularly with the Society for New Music in Syracuse, NY, Cayuga Chamber Orchestra, and Nazareth Trio.
I completed a Masters Degree in Performance and Literature at the Eastman School of Music in 2006. During my studies there, I became a member of the Eastman Chamber Society, was Principal of Eastman Philharmonia, Eastman Chamber Orchestra, and Eastman Opera Orchestra, and studied chamber music with the Ying Quartet, Elinore Freer, Dr. Jean Barr, Richard Kilmer, and Dr. Kenneth Grant; my principal instructors have been Alan Harris, Kathy Kemp and Carol Vizzini. I was also an Aspen Music Festival Fellow from 2001-2003.
I play the 2001 "Willow Cello" by Jim McKean and a 1999 Bow by Ron Forrester.
