About

I've been living in San Francisco in 2010, and recently finished my Master's degree at the SF Conservatory of Music- I'm passionate about contemporary music, and I'm the violinist for the Bay Area-based new music ensemble Wild Rumpus. I'm always looking for ways to incorporate violin with different genres of music, which has led to me doing everything from playing Radiohead covers with gamelan-fusion band Gamelan X, collaborating with electronic music producers, and giving solo recitals. In addition to violin, I'm a fashion blogger and Alexander McQueen fanatic, so look out for upcoming shows of mine featuring the intersection of fashion and music!
