I am an independent musician/artist based in Houston, TX.
Regionally I lead the string sections of the Victoria Symphony Orchestra and the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra as Concertmaster and Associate Concertmaster. I earned Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees from Rice University for my studies at the Shepherd School of Music.
Since the 1980's I have performed with Houston's major arts and musical organizations including the Houston Symphony, Houston Ballet Orchestra, Houston Grand Opera Orchestra, Theater Under the Stars, Broadway Across America,
Texas Chamber Orchestra and many more. In that time I shared the stage with luminary musicians and entertainers like Bernadette Peters, Henry Mancini, Johnny Mathis, Ed McMahon, Larry Gatlin, Crystal Gayle, Luciano Pavarotti, Hildegard Behrens, and Yanni. My time with the Houston Symphony and with the Aspen Festival Orchestra gave me the opportunity to work closely with the great conductors also: Stanisław Skrowaczewski, Jersey Semkow, Jorge Mester, Max Rudolf, Sir Alexander Gibson, Raymond Leppard, Krystof Penderecki.
For over three decades I have instructed violin and viola students in my private studios in Houston, Katy, and Kingwood. Some of my students have flourished in musical careers as performers, educators, and administrators of university programs and major arts organizations. They have made me most humble and proud with their dedication to the highest principles of making music and furthering their knowledge and skills.
