What pays the bills? Playing the harp.
What’s your hidden talent? I love crafting and find inspiration for things to make on Pinterest with my 1-year-old son.
What is your favorite piece to play on the harp? Ravel’s Introduction and Allegro, in fact, there is a tiny snippet of me performing this piece in the film An Education.
What do you do to avoid practicing? Avoid?! I would do anything for a few minutes practicing with a toddler around the house. I set up all sorts of toys and instruments to keep him happy while I play.
What’s your favorite smartphone app? Cleartune if I am at a gig and have forgotten my tuner. Just need a tuning key app now!
What did you want to be when you were a kid? So predictable, but a harpist!
