I am a multi-instrumentalist from Queens, NYC, and I am currently the cellist/guitarist for the first national tour of the hit broadway show "Waitress". I trained as a classical cellist at the Aaron Copland School of Music, and I am a lifelong guitarist. Before starting my broadway career, I worked as a freelance cellist, playing with numerous orchestras around NYC, in addition to teaching many students in the Queens/Nassau County area. I also performed in a 30 city national tour the with the Post-Rock band "You Bred Raptors?", taking over for their original cellist. As a guitarist, I was sitting in with a professional band by the time I was just 14, and would later to go to play many clubs around NYC, such as the Bitter End and Bowery Electric, with my own projects.

While I am out on the road, I am available for skype lessons on either of these two instruments. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
