My musical adventure started when I was 13 years old and began playing violin professionally. Having come from a family of musicians (my mother, a professor in harp and my father, a professor in piano), I was naturally drawn into the world of music. I have since performed numerous concerts across the globe as both an orchestral player and soloist. I completed my violin performance degree in 2013 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 2017, I finished a four year fellowship with the New World Symphony based in Miami, under the baton of Michael Tilson Thomas.

In addition to being a classically trained violinist, I compose, produce and mix music professionally. I'm also a multi-instrumentalist, actively performing and composing a wide range of musical styles and mediums. My main instruments are the violin, viola, guitar, piano, keyboards, and percussion. I work closely with studios in Toronto and Miami for mastering services. 

I enjoy building genuine relationships with my clients to gain a better understanding of who they are, what they like and how I can best be of service to them. Through a flexible, creative approach, I'm able to follow detailed instructions or create an audio experience simply based off a feeling or adjective. Over the years, I've collaborated with many musicians, organizations, producers and directors, creating original music for film, museums, planetariums, podcasts, radio programs, educational videos, ads and arrangements for songwriters.  

Other than music, I enjoy astronomy, Carl Sagan, yoga and 80's dance parties.
