Why did you choose your instrument / Pourquoi avez-vous choisi cet instrument ?
I'm not sure whether my mom chose the instrument or whether I chose the instrument. I seem to remember a painting in my room of a girl playing the violin with a little dog howling beside her, and I wanted to play the violin like the girl in the picture.

What are your professional goals? / Décrivez quelques-unes de vos ambitions professionnelles.
I'm not sure where exactly I'm headed with my music, but I have a few ideas of where I would like to end up. Some of them are: playing in a pit orchestra for broadway shows, playing in string orchestras used for other artists' performances (such as in American Idol etc.), being a part of a band.

What are your interests outside classical music / Avez-vous d’autres intérêts à part la musique classique ?
I like to make jewellery, read, I love to discuss controversial issues, and I love to hang out with my friends. I also like going to church on a regular basis when I can.

Who is your favourite classical musician? / Quel est votre artiste (classique) préféré ?
My favourite classical artist would have to be James Ehnes.

What has recently played on your Mp3? / Qu’écoutez-vous ces jours-ci sur votre Mp3?
I don't have an iPod, but the music I most recently played was a John Mayer cd.

What is there about you that you think people might be surprised to know? / Y a-t-il quelque chose à votre propos qui est un peu surprenant ou hors de l’ordinaire?
I think that people might be surprised to know that I step-dance. I have absolutely no dancing talent, except for step-dance. People might also be surprised to know that most of the music I listen to is non-classical ...
