What is your favorite piece of music?  Richard Strauss- Ein Heldenleben
What is your favorite QCSO memory? I really enjoyed the 16-17 season opening concert, it was a great program for me to get to know my new colleagues. 
What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising? While living in Japan, I climbed Mt. Fuji twice! I am also tri-lingual. 
Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you?  I love to travel and bake. When I'm not performing, I can be found working for the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
