He is a former violin student of David Chavez and a graduate of Beckman High School in Tustin USD. While there he played in orchestra all 4 years under Jim Kollias. He started violin under Jim Thompson in the beginning of sixth grade and has been playing ever since. As an alumnus of Wildwood, his passion for the “camp experience” is rooted in fond memories of Friday night skits and dances.
