"I began making violins in 1979 at the Violin Making School of America. After graduating from there in 1983, I moved to New York City to work with William L. Monical, where I stayed for four years. While in New York I took advantage of many opportunities to examine, both inside and out, a spectrum of very fine modern and historical instruments. Since 1987 I have lived and worked in Seattle, Washington. I continue to study instruments often and to participate in ongoing professional violin making forums. Taking opportunities to examine fine instruments continues to be invaluable toward developing insight into classical construction techniques and tonal characteristics.
I build violins, violas and cellos for musicians specializing in modern performance practices. I also build instruments in an historically informed manner for musicians specializing in period performance. " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
