Have you ever wished that you could have an orchestral string section play on one of your songs? Do you think one of your songs would really take off with the addition of a solo violin?

As an artist myself, I understand how exciting recording your music can be. But I also understand how daunting it can get at times. With that in mind, I strive to take as much pressure off of the process as I possibly can and make sure that anyone I work with comes away feeling completely satisfied. I have the experience needed to help you turn your dreams into reality and I cannot wait to do so!

As a recent graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, I studied under the tutelage of renowned pedagogue Peter Slowik. I regularly play with orchestras in the greater Nashville area, including the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Kentucky, the Evansville Philharmonic, the Jackson Symphony Orchestra and others.

Outside of the concert hall, I am also an avid songwriter, folk musician, and studio musician. Some of the artists that I've had the pleasure of working with in the studio and live include Crystal Gayle, Aoife O'Donovan, Sierra Hull, Terrence Blanchard, Our Last Night, The War and Treaty, and even Kathie Lee Gifford! As a part of both the Nashville Music Scoring Orchestra and the Nashville Recording Orchestra I have been lucky enough to play on multiple video game and movie soundtracks including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the Netflix original movie Sextuplets, among others. I have performed in venues ranging from Carnegie Hall in New York, NY and Severance Hall in Cleveland, OH to The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN.

All of that aside, whether I'm performing at Carnegie Hall for a sold out crowd or in someone's basement for 30 people, as long as I am making music I consider myself incredibly lucky. This is what I love to do and I am so happy to be able to do it. I would love nothing more than to be a small, or large, part of your next project and I promise to do my best to help you create something you can be truly proud of!

Some examples of what I am capable of providing include:

Solo Violin, Solo Fiddle, Violin Duets, String Trios, String Quartets, Large String Sections, String Arrangements
