I am a Romanian-born, U.S.-trained cellist, recently relocated to Sydney. I have 14 years teaching experience, and my own teachers and masterclass mentors include János Starker, Peter Stumpf, Melissa Kraut, Richard Hirschl, Barbara Haffner, Lynn Harrell & Peter Stumpf. Performance credits include Co-Principal with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, as well as series at Chicago’s House Of Blues, Peninsula Hotel, and Off-Broadway in New York.

Non-classical engagements include X Factor Australia, Australia’s Got Talent, and Dancing with the Stars Australia.
