A native of Berkeley, California, I studied with Anne Crowden, David Dalton and David Abel. I hold Bachelors and Masters degrees in music performance from Brigham Young University and Mills College.
While living in Italy for seven years, I taught violin and chamber music at the Accademia Musicale Mediterranea in Leporano. I now run my own private teaching studio in North Berkeley, perform with local orchestral groups, and compose music for small ensembles. I recently collaborated with the Central Works Theater Company to compose, arrange and perform the musical score for their production of "The Yellow Wallpaper."
I currently serve as President of the San Francisco section of the American String Teachers Association and was honored to receive their Kudos award in May 2015.
