As a classical and contemporary cellist, I have a special passion for highlighting the works of new and underrepresented composers. I am available for lessons in Portland, OR and can also offer my services remotely across the United States. Contact me here if you would like to work with me on a commission, hire me for your special event, or learn to play the cello!

I excel with beginning to intermediate-level cello students seeking a focused but compassionate introduction to classical music. I have several years of experience in both individual and small group instruction.


I love working with living composers, and to this end have premiered several works for cello and mixed ensemble. My musical education and performances have taken me all over the United States, from National Sawdust in Brooklyn to the New World Center in Miami, and I hold a Performer's Diploma in Cello Performance from Indiana University.
