About me:

I'm from Pittsburgh, and I play the violin and the mandolin! I love working with dancers and writing music collaboratively. Currently, I'm learning German (an ongoing process of many years).

How have I benefitted from mentorship?

Working with mentors has helped me both artistically and administratively. Mentors in music have taught me about what it is like to work in music outside of school. Additionally, mentors in dance and drama have also taken me to performances of dance and theater that I would not have known about otherwise that have definitely shaped my music since!
