About

I am a freelance viola player in the Bay Area who studied music at Colburn Conservatory and history at UC Berkeley (Go Bears). I enjoy camping, weightlifting, and re-reading Jane Austen books. I nerd out over traveling stories, local history, and the Rococo Period and I am trying desperately to getting better at names, but will (hopefully not creepily) remember your face if I see you on Muni.
I moved to San Francisco from Berkeley last fall and am trying to make this city feel like the 1,000 person, wine-country village (S/O to Kenwood) I grew up in. Hope to meet you!

Music

In my professional life I normally play a combination of classical and contemporary, with some work with R&B, HipHop, Gospel and Indie artists including Toni Tony Tone, Kygo, and Odesza. For Groupmuses, I like presenting one solid classical or romantic quartet, along with a lesser-known, sometimes more modern shorter piece.
