Teaching since:
2010

I earned my Bachelor of Music attending the Cleveland Institute of Music, received a Master of Music from the Colburn Conservatory, and am currently in post-graduate studies under Lina Bahn at the University of Southern California.

As a teacher, I've been fortunate to maintain private studios wherever I've lived, and have also added a regular faculty position at the Benefic Chamber Music Festival to my summer schedule, which involves coaching and private teaching. I have also recently led workshops and masterclasses at University of Texas, El Paso, JDR Summer Strings Academy in Plano, Texas, and the University of Juarez, Mexico.

It's been an honor to perform as soloist with orchestras such as the Starling Chamber Orchestra at the Forbidden City Concert Hall, China, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, and Symphony of the Lakes Orchestras, Indiana, the Lake Charles Symphony, Louisiana, the El Paso Symphony, Texas, the Poway Symphony, California, the Juarez Symphony, Mexico, and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Russia. My performances have been broadcast nationally and internationally, with critical acclaim.

In 2011, I starred in the music video “Stronger” with groundbreaking string trio Time for Three (the video was featured on CNN in 2012), and am featured in a music video from Bach Dancing & Dynamite playing the first movement of the Klein String Trio, as of 2017.

In chamber music I have recently collaborated with artists such as members of the Calidore String Quartet, members of the Jupiter String Quartet, David Requiro, June Han, Kurt Muroki, Carmit Zori, and Joseph Johnson, among others.

I am currently a member of the Benefic Piano Trio, Grand Prize winners of the 2018 ENKOR International Music Competition.

I am very proud to come from a tradition of great pedagogues, with long term instruction from the likes of Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Zachary DePue, acclaimed concert violinist Joan Kwuon, and Tokyo String Quartet ex-first violin Martin Beaver. I hope to pass their knowledge along with mine to my students.
