A great cellist plays as a singer, dancer, storyteller, architect, painter, sculpturer, thinker, poet, missionary, and sportsman. (paraphrased from an exquisite Paul Tortlier masterclass)

I've played the cello since age 4, training at many institutions including The Aspen Music Festival and the Boston Conservatory. Some influential mentors have been Sato Knudsen of Boston Symphony, the Tacaks String Quartet, and though we will never meet until I cross to the other side, the recordings of Mstislav Rostropovich.

In 2012 I was an apprentice cellist for the Singapore Symphony, and became part of the Great Wall Soloists in Beijing. I made my solo debut in 2013 on the Schumann Concerto with the Cusco Symphony. Within the same month I made a guest appearance at an international cello festival in Lima, and took a year to train young cellists in the Andes region of Peru. From spending time in Latin America, I had to master the art of the solo cello concert- often because there was no acoustic piano within a 100km radius of the venue. The most memorable concert would have to be the first exposure to classical music to the indigenous Q'ero people.

I've very recently returned to Boston, and am here to keep being the cellist I am in the best city in the United States of America.
