I am an active solo and chamber violinist.
From 2014 to 2017, I served as concertmaster of the San Francisco Civic Symphony, the oldest and largest community orchestra in northern California. As concertmaster, I helped make musical decisions, lead sectional rehearsals, create and coach chamber groups, organize special events, raise money, find guest soloists and conductors, author concert programs, and act as first point of contact for new members. For volunteer outreach, I performed at schools, animal shelters, charities, and arts foundations.
I sometimes perform with Classical Revolution and Awesöme Orchestra.
In the past, I performed with ensembles at venues including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, as well as San Francisco venues such as The Fillmore, Legion of Honor, Grace Cathedral, Bayview Opera House, Cadillac Hotel, Bently Reserve, SF Conservatory of Music, and City Hall.
I study violin under John Chisholm, San Francisco Symphony.
