Hometown: Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan; my family lives in Israel
Education: Bachelor of Music from Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music
Joined the CSO in 2002
Favorite orchestral work: Stravinsky's Rite of Spring is definitely one of them.
Activities/organizations outside of the CSO: I teach at CCM. I like baking, cooking and working out.
Fun fact: I paint and draw, and have donated and sold some paintings. Most of my music is filled with doodles and caricatures.
