About Me

I was first introduced to the violin through a scholarship from the Washington Old Time Fiddlers in 2010. Now, years later, I still have not gotten tired of practicing and performing.

A self-proclaimed ambassador of "music-in-general", I have explored a variety of different genres of music including: Old-Time, Irish, Celtic, Romanian, Klezmer, Cape Breton, Hungarian, Gypsy, Scottish, Classical, New England Contra Dance style, and, most recently, been absolutely blown away by the world of Jazz and improvised musics such as Gypsy Jazz and Swing.

I have taught myself fiddle since I began playing, but after having taken two years of strictly Classical lessons with Ronald Patterson in Seattle, I have embarked on a journey of not only teaching myself fiddle, but also maintaining a Classical technique and constantly upping my factilities by myself. There are many more projects and performances in my future and, after high school, I am hoping to attend Berklee College of Music in fall of 2019!

Immensely enjoying musical performance, I've played a wide range of venues and events ranging from solos with the Port Angeles Symphony, to performing at state and county fairs, fundraisers, benefits, private parties, and talent shows.

Some of my more recent paths include becoming part of the PC College Jazz Ensemble, recording and releasing my brand new solo album, "Jump" (David Rivers on guitar), and continuing to not only perform with David, but, as a duo, play for contra dances as well.

As an avid arranger and composer, I write and arrange much of the music I play. I also enjoy working as a transcriber, session musician, and performance coach. Some of my more recent projects include working on music for my next album and composing music for orchestra (which will eventually be on an album or EP); I've finished a pretty epic suite for chamber orchestra called "Four" which is based on my four personalities.
