Originally from Boston, I earned my Doctoral and Master’s degrees at Stony Brook University and Bachelor of Music at the New England Conservatory.
Between the years of 1996 and 2013 I was a member of the Colorado and Avalon Quartets, award-winning ensembles with tours throughout the US.
My chamber music experience includes performances of the complete Beethoven and Bartok quartets, as well as over 100 new works written for the Penderecki Quartet, with whom I have been a member since 2013. I have appeared in the Ravinia, Tanglewood, Aspen, and Caramoor festivals, as well as Festival of the Sound, Music from Salem, Ottawa Chamberfest, the annual Music Mountain festival (CT), and have recorded for Albany Records and Marquis Classics.
As a soloist, I performed the premiere of J. Mark Scearce’s cello concerto “Aracana” with the University of Connecticut Symphony Orchestra, and Haydn’s D major cello concerto with the Wuhan Symphony Orchestra in China.
I have taught at the University of Connecticut, the Hartt Music School, Bard Conservatory and the New England Conservatory, and conducted masterclasses at the renowned UNAM (University) in Mexico City, Lynn University in Florida, the Cleveland Institute, the Colorado Quartet’s Soundfest, and Charles Castleman’s Quartet program.
