ABOUT

I left my freelance career in NYC to play music both as a soloist and a member of the Lake String Quartet in Yellowstone NP. Due to COVID, the park has not had live music, and i'm expanding my avenues and it looks as though I'll be landing in Charlestown, RI for a while. My main axe is the souped and un-souped up cello. I also play piano and sing and write string arrangements as well as compose original music.

Influences

I grew up listening to jazz, classical, folk rock and progressive rock. I play all of these genres and expanded my horizons to avant jazz and pop.
