"Playing the cello was the first decision I took as a kid the moment I innocently started saying
that I wanted to play 'THE BIG VIOLIN'.
Since then, music has come along with my LIFE journey.
I discovered a lot playing in symphonic orchestras as well as doing chamber music.
Travelling has also given me the opportunity to meet top musicians of the instrument I dedicate all my life."
