Hello! I am a violin/fiddle/mandolin/guitar utility player and I’ve spent my career in the in the studio (and on the road) with many Grammy award winning multi-platinum artists as a performer, music director, string arranger, contractor, and songwriter. I also had the incredible honor of living with and being mentored by Levon Helm of The Band.

My first tour was when I joined the Jonny Lang band for a few years right out of college which eventually led to either recording or performing with artist such as Cyndi Lauper, Natasha Bedingfield, Avril Lavigne, Macy Gray, Switchfoot, Jimmy Gnecco of “Ours”, Jennifer Hudson, Andra Day, Will Champlin, Katie Melua, Alisan Porter, and Gwyneth Paltrow to name a few. I'm very passionate about recording/performing and getting the perfect parts to take your song to the next level.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
