About

Amateur, born again cellist from the Bay Area. Started cello when I was 8 with Barbara Wampner. In high school, I studied with Bonnie Hampton and Jean-Michel Fonteneau at the SF Conservatory of Music. While at Stanford, I studied with Chris Costanza and the St. Lawrence String Quartet. After college, life and work took over and I stopped playing completely. In 2015, after taking a decade hiatus from cello, I began playing again! And no, it’s not like riding a bike. Chamber music is my fav and I've had the opportunity to study with members of the St. Lawrence, Brentano, Tokyo and Danish String Quartets. I am always excited to meet new people through music! Message me if you're looking for a cellist to sightread or jam with.

Other tidbits about me: food and fashion lover, Stanford grad (’05 B.A. / ’12 M.B.A.) and VP of Marketplace Operations at Poshmark, a community-driven marketplace for fashion.
