About Me

VIOLINIST
I started my musical studies at the age of 11 with music theory and piano. Two years later I was accepted to Monterrey College of Music and Dance. After graduating with a BM in Violin Performance, I joined the Nuevo León University Symphonic Orchestra and developed a busy schedule playing private events and running a violin teaching studio.

In 2005 I moved to Northern California to pursue further studies while continuing my musical career. I went on to perform several seasons with Apollo Arts, an artistic group that organizes chamber music and orchestra concerts, ballet as well as opera performances. There I had the opportunity to perform alongside renowned pianist Brian Ganz and violinist Peter Zazofsky.

Among the groups with which I played in Northern California are Sierra Masters Chorale (Grass Valley, CA), Veridian Symphony Orchestra (Marysville, CA), Folsom Symphony Orchestra (Folsom, CA) and Auburn Symphony Orchestra (Auburn, CA).

I am a big fan of musicals and I have had the privilege of playing in: Ragtime, West Side Story, Next to Normal, Guys and Dolls , Into The Woods, Spring Awakening and The Sound of Music.

Since moving to Los Angeles in 2015 I have played with Los Angeles Symphony, Angel City Chorale, Santa Monica Symphony as well as private and corporate events and recording sessions.

I have performed with world renowned Persian pop stars, Aref Arefkia, Pouya Pourjalil and Leila Forouhar, in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

When not performing or recording I run a private teaching studio in Studio City, CA.

 

 

 

SINGER~SONGWRITER
Singing was my first musical passion. The moment I started learning music, I also started to write poems and songs. I never really thought about putting my songs out there until a few years ago when I met my musical partner and we both started to think seriously about producing our songs. We created the music project: Oliva. We chose Los Angeles as the landscape to record, release and play our songs. We are now in the process of recording our first album.
