What is something interesting that people may not know about you?
I love tennis and started playing at a young age. My Dad played professionally for about one year before tearing his ACL. Before I got into music, my dream was to become a professional tennis player.

Name three of your favorite composers:
Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, Dmitri Shostakovich

When taking a break from music-making, what is your favorite thing to do?
Having a night out with friends.

What are you most looking forward to this summer with the NRO?
I have played with a lot of good orchestras, but I am hoping NRO is the best yet. Hopefully, playing in such a great orchestra pushes me to be better.
