ABOUT

I'm a classically trained violinist from Atlanta. Been playing violin since 1991. I was lead 2nd violinist for the Dekalb Youth Symphony for several years and concert master throughout high school (1997-2001) I received a scholarship for college to play the VIOLA, which I taught myself in the 11th grade, for that purpose.

After moving to Connecticut, stopped playing as much as I'd like.

I started playing with a Bluegrass band in 2010. I loved playing bluegrass and now want to create my own band that mixes popular Pop, Alternative, Hip-Hop into Folk/Bluegrass...

Interested in trying to record and play at open mics and possibly pick up some other small gigs...
