The first thing I remember doing is playing violin, and I hope fiddling is the last thing I do before I die. Nothing brings me more joy than creating music, and I always strive to bring that same joy to my listeners.
I’ve been studying violin since age three, and have now journeyed from classical to bluegrass to rock, pop, and beyond. I also love learning about and sharing the history behind my music. After specializing in the history of Ancient Greek Music as an undergraduate at Yale University, I went on to study American Music in the Public Humanities Master’s Program at Brown. My music and history work have been featured at the Smithsonian, The Yale University Art Gallery, a Providence, RI vocational high school (through the year-long support of a Rhode Island State Council for the Arts’ grant), Smugglers’ Notch Ski Resort, and the 2014 and 2015 Brown University Folk Festival.
I currently live in Nashville, TN, where I work as a music teacher for The Music Staff Studio, run a small company called Pearwise Tutors, and perform regularly with the Honky Tonk Critters and as a solo act.

This website gives you a preview of what I do–but my music is made for live performance, so come hear me in person!
