I like to be at home, or out walking with my husband and my dog.

I am assistant concertmaster at the Long Beach Symphony, I also play chamber music whenever I get the opportunity. One group I have been performing with fairly regularly is Camerata Pacifica. I also sub with several local orchestras.

I love to do ceramics (and sometimes other crafts).
