I have always loved music and have had a particular interest in the traditional music of the British Isles since I saw my first pipe and drum performance as a child. I began my classical music studies at 11 and as a young adult I was fortunate to study traditional Scottish piping with a world class band. I eventually learned to play the Irish tinwhistle and uilleann pipes as well. Through the Society for Creative Anachronisms I was exposed to the early dance music of Europe and the Middle East.

After discovering the chromatic limits of the pipes and whistles, I turned my hand to the guitar for a time. Later, I moved to the desert of northern New Mexico and in that most unlikely of places I fell in love with mandolin and began studying under the tutelage of a lifetime player and performer of folk music. I love the mandolin for its versatility, portability, and the near universal smiles it evokes when people see it. I have performed music in California, Louisiana, Maryland, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, and Washington to date.

I perform at period events, renaissance festivals, Celtic gatherings and celebrations, fairy festivals, and weddings. I am a frequent performer at PNW renaissance fairs including Oregon Renaissance Fair, Canterbury Fair, Washington Renaissance Fair, and Shrewsbury Renaissance Fair.
