After devoting 28 years to music, I’m excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the field of psychology. I’m passionate about using my lived experience as a trans Jewish immigrant to serve minority communities. Currently, I'm involved with The Pride Study at UCSF-Stanford while volunteering at the LGBT National Help Center, Alliance Health Project and UCSF School Room and UCSF's new No One Dies Alone program.
I’m honored to have been the first openly transgender musician in a major American orchestra and I look forward to the day when it’s nothing unusual, in any space. I’m really grateful for the amazing people I got to meet and the opportunities the world of music has afforded me, and I hope this next chapter is at just as fruitful.
If you’re curious what I did as a musician, here’s a little more of the story.
