If you had to do something other than be a Baltimore Symphony Musician, what would you do for a living?
I’d probably be a veterinarian or an organic farmer.

Where is your favorite get-away spot?
I’ve enjoyed playing with and experiencing the Grand Teton Music Festival in WY for the last 8 summers as I love the combination of music making and hiking in that National Park. Another favorite place is the Mexican Riviera May

What or who influenced you to be a professional musician?
I’m a 4th generation musician so my family inspired me. I was surrounded by music.

What do you like to do with your ”me time”?
I like to spend time with my cats, spend time outdoors gardening or walking, sometimes I enjoy ballroom and salsa dancing.
