ABOUT

I'm a classically trained violinist, comfortable in ALL styles, soloing and improvising. I can also play viola and basic mandolin. I read and write. I can play electric and can fit my sound for just about any situation, effects or clean classical. I've performed and composed a lot of music for professional theater as well as bands in styles from country, western swing, rockabilly, bluegrass, folk, blues, rock, and punk gypsy surf as well as quieter smaller singer songwriter situations. I'm comfortable sitting in just about any situation, I'm also an actor and am comfortable in front but don't need it. I've been a guest performer for many names, including Steve Earle, Billy Corgan, Jim Peterik, and Andrew Bird. I love original music and creating new parts, I'd love to get in with a band for longer term projects and tours, but cool just sitting in. Let's make some music!
