When did you start playing your instrument?
What do you do when you’re not playing in the LSO?
I am an actuary, specializing in small business retirement consulting. I am also a self-described softball phenom.
When, or how, did you come to join the orchestra?
I am an Upper Darby native, and an alumni of the Upper Darby Concert Choir, so I have been an LSO fan for many years! When I moved back to town in 2014, Herold Klein encouraged me to become an LSO regular.
Do you play in any other musical groups?
I “freelance” occasionally, but the LSO is my only regularly meeting group.
Do you come from a musical family?
I do – I am the youngest of three, and we all were involved in music from a young age.
Does the instrument you play on have a story?
My violin was made by the same violin maker who made my childhood teacher’s instrument, and that to me is a very special connection. I have been playing on it for almost 10 years now.
Are you originally from Lansdowne/Philadelphia?
Technically, I grew up in Drexel Hill, but our next door neighbors lived in Lansdowne!
Who is your favorite superhero?
The caped crusader, the dark knight, Bruce Wayne…. BATMAN
