I'm a professional violinist and fiddler with nearly a decade of experience in the field of music education, and have taught over 75 private students.

As a performer I've played and recorded with acts such as Ryan Bingham, Haim, Sara Watkins, The Dirty Projectors, Passenger, Sure Sure, The Wild Reeds, Dustbowl Revival, and many others. I've also founded bands that have performed for up to 7000 people in venues such as UCLA's Royce Hall, The Los Angeles Tennis Center, The Satellite and The Hotel Cafe. My music has been licensed for TV and Films such as "The Longest Ride" and "The Flash".
