Flute

I have played the flute since I was 10 years old and have extensive experience as a soloist, chamber, and orchestral player. I am always looking for musical opportunities and enjoy collaborating with other musicians. I play the flute, as well as piccolo, alto flute, Baroque soprano recorder and Baroque tenor recorder.

I have received a rigorous classical training, but I am no stranger to improvisation in studio sessions and live performances of pop, or folk. In addition to playing the flute, I pursue music composition and visual art. I divide my time between New York and Asheville.
