I received a B.M. and M.M. from Rice University and spent a year studying contemporary viola and viola d’amore music with Garth Knox in Paris (2006-07). I maintained a private violin and viola studio in Houston, Portland, Seattle, and am excited to return to my hometown, Los Angeles. In addition to Suzuki Book 1 and 2 training, I also completed training with Mimi Zweig (Retreat for Professional Violinists and Violists, University of Indiana, Bloomington) and the O’Connor Method Books 1-4. I strive to create a supportive and creative learning environment for my students and promote excellence at all experience levels.

As a professional musician, I freelance in the Los Angeles area and am a member of the Portland Opera orchestra.
