Tell us a little bit about yourself and your life. Not necessarily music-related!

I was born in New York. I went to school there and in Miami at the University of Miami. I love the outdoors and rock climbing and snowboarding! l’ve lived in New York. Miami, Singapore, and Kenya. I just moved back to New York from Singapore two weeks ago after living there for 4 years.

How did you first get into music?

School program in public school in New York. There was a cute girl that played the cello, so I signed up =)

What made you decide that music would be an important part of your life?

I was pretty good at it, I enjoyed it, and once I found teaching I knew I would do it everyday of my life.

What has been your musical highlight so far?

Teaching and playing concerts all over the world. And recording with Bobby McFerrin, Mark O’Connor, George Benson and Chick Corea.

Who are your favourite composers/artists/musicians?

Too many to list!

What do you anticipate for the Nevis Ensemble?

It kind of feels like l’m going to camp because I don’t really know anyone!
