About Me


Playing a concert in Prague, 2015!


Professionally, I am a classical guitarist. That is what all my work revolves around. I own a music school and perform with a chamber ensemble in the US and a few other countries. I finished my masters degree in classical guitar performance this year. (finally!) I work incredibly hard and definitely more hours than I get paid for, but I love what I do so it's ok!


Keep busy

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I host whenever possible and have surfed in LA and Barcelona. I've also gone to a few CS events in NYC.


I have couch surfed in L.A. and Barcelona, each time was an amazing experience.


Performing, Traveling, Practicing, Napping.

Music, Movies & Books

It really depends on my mood and what I'm working on. I have a real interest in traditional folk music from eastern Europe, Asia and South America.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Performing at the Sydney Opera House definitely tops my list of amazing things I've done!
