I am a classically trained cellist who has gone "loop-y".... I perform solo with my electric cello, and use a loop pedal to create layered soundscapes to go with my lyrical melodies. I grew up in Seattle, and play classical (acoustic) cello in Northwest Sinfonietta orchestra.

Traditional Repertoire

I perform my own Neo-Classial compositions, in addition to standard Classical repertoire. My music is played on a variety of radio programs, from KDFC and KUSC classical stations in California, to KEXP, KBCS, Classic KING FM here in Seattle. I bring a range of energy in the pieces I play, and I like to tell little stories along the way too. I have a "Bach to the Future" program with my electric cello, where I pair movements of Bach cello suites (along with some other favorite classical gems) with my own compositions.
