Violin
San Antonio, TX

About me:
I am a violinist from San Antonio, Texas, and currently study with Dr. Eka Gogichashvili at the Baylor University School of Music. I was born in Hawaii and lived there for 12 years, and that was where my life as a musician began. I am extremely passionate about classical music, particularly the works of Richard Strauss, Brahms, Beethoven, and Vaughan Williams. More specifically, I am passionate about chamber music because I love collaborating with other musicians in such an intimate setting. Overall, I am eager to learn and hone my skills as a violinist and musician.
