After completing my modern violin studies at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, I moved to Sweden in 2012 and began pursuing my true love, Baroque violin, which I had been studying since age 15. As a teenager, I was drawn in both by the expressive possibilities of original instruments and by the multi-faceted approach of historically informed performance, the process of carving my own path by incorporating factors such as visual art, dance and original written sources into the interpretation of a piece of music. Then I discovered a kind of joy and intensity of connection between early musicians, where no matter the size of the ensemble it is always chamber music and always completely alive —I was hooked! 

In the ten years since moving to Europe I have been performing and touring with Concerto Copenhagen, Camerata Øresund, Barokksolistene, Arte dei Suonatori, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Höör Barock, Göteborg Baroque, and Nivalis Barokk among others. I am also a co-founder of the period instrument Bellevue String Quartet, as well as Ensemble Prima Vista and Ensemble Cheron.  Through two grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, I was able to spend two years studying the connections between Scandinavian folk music, early music and dance. I have combined all these musical interests in my project BookJam, a series of informal chamber music concerts at a bookshop in Malmö. Other than making music, I enjoy organic vegetable gardening, hiking and playing with my young son and daughter.
