This instrument is part of the Los Angeles Contemporary Violin & Bow Maker 2018 Exhibition & Sale.
In 2003, I enrolled at the Violin Making School of America under the tutelage of Peter Prier, Charles Woolf, and Georg Meiwes. There I learned instrument construction, woodworking basics and hand tool skills.
I graduated in 2007 and moved to Atlanta, to work at the highly regarded Williams Gengakki Violins Inc., to continue my education and put to work the skills and principles that I learned in school. I had the great fortune to be pushed, encouraged, and educated by Regie Williams, Ryan McLaughlin and Daniel Medina, and getting to participate in the advanced training at the Oberlin Summer Restoration Programs and bow rehair training from Jerry Pasewicz in Raleigh N.C.
With the closing of WGVI, I had the great opportunity to continue my work at Beau Vinci Violins in Alpharetta, where I honed my skills and headed the workshop for many years, and getting to meet many of Altanta's great musicians and families.
