"Tell the truth, there's less to remember."-Mark Twain

I am a 28-year-old violinist and pursuing a credential in Instrumental Music. I graduated with an MFA degree in Violin Performance from the University of California, Irvine in 2011. I currently live in Irvine, where I balance several teaching positions: Coaching strings for the Newport-Mesa School District at Corona del Mar High School and maintaining a private music studio of violin and viola students. In addition to teaching, I perform professionally with the Dana Point Symphony and San Bernardino Symphony.

"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next."-Maximus

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."-Confucius

My curiosity in music education began in elementary school under my first music teacher Margaret Asato, a string specialist for the Los Angeles Unified School District. While I pursued violin studies at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA) I was faced with the obstacle of finding a means to pay for lessons. I was the eldest of three brothers and my family could not afford to provide extra funds for my music lessons, so I began working at Schurr High School in Montebello, CA as a violin coach and at the Saturday Conservatory of Music in California State University, Los Angeles to fund my lessons while in high school. A combination of these early experiences and more recent positions working with adolescents and children in music has ultimately influenced my decision to pursue a credential. With a credential, I hope to reach a larger audience and primarily focus my attention on adolescents in middle and high school, especially those in socially disadvantaged minority communities with little to no access to music education.
