With the RPO since: 2003
Hometown: Vancouver, Canada
When not performing with the RPO, you can find me... on the Thruway in my Maxima, or frolicking around Rockingham Street with Claire.
First music-related memory: Taking group lessons at my public elementary school with my best friends.
Favorite ice cream flavor: Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey!!
Favorite restaurant in town and why: Golden Dynasty, when mustard greens are in season.
Do you have a pet? Just a family of woodchucks in the yard.
My favorite part of working in the RPO is... Getting to know my stand partners, and the chance to play great orchestral music.
If someone were visiting Rochester, what would you tell them to go see or do? Have dinner at the Dinosaur BBQ, see an RPO concert, and go back to the BBQ for drinks.
