ABOUT

I am an experienced Violinist that can also play other stringed instruments. My biggest asset is my improvisation which enables me to jam to any genre of music with any musician. I was trained classically, but have expanded my horizons to include any type of music. I have much experience in playing different genres in several bands and playing gigs. Love to perform. I am also a music teacher.
I make my own electric violins that I play. My electric violin has the low C string for a deeper sound.I also have an acoustic violin with a Fischman pickup. Looking to collaborate with other musicians to see what we can offer one another.
