What do you want patrons of the Symphony to know about you?
I really like whacky socks. Sadly, I can’t wear them in concert with a tux.
What teacher, mentor or other influencer inspired you the most?
It’s impossible to pick just one person that has influenced and inspired me throughout my career thus far. All of my teachers and mentors have inspired me in their own special ways and continue to do so to this day.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love to cook. When my schedule allows I’ll spend a few hours in the kitchen making some delicious food.
What has been your favorite moment on stage?
So far my favorite moment on stage has been playing Bruckner’s 6th Symphony with the Boston Symphony and Andris Nelsons.
Who is your favorite composer?
Brahms, Respighi, and Bruckner. It’s too difficult to pick just one and these 3 are just the tip of the iceberg!
