My grandfather played the violin when I was 3 years old. It was the first time I was introduced to classical music.
When I was 15, I decided to switch from violin to viola. That’s when I realized I really love playing music. And so I decided to pursue music as a career when I got admitted to the New England Conservatory.
Marcus Thompson. He was my viola teacher at NEC.
Beethoven. For now.
I do not have a preference on which piece is my favorite. But depending on different settings, I would prefer one over another.

I would love to open my own restaurant.
Bartók, because I would love to ask him how he would finish his viola concerto. Beethoven, because I would love to ask him why he didn’t compose a viola concerto. Uncle Roger, because I would love to see him roasting Bartók and Beethoven about their viola concerto.
I love fishing and mountain biking.
Be humble and practice scales!
