    Prolific violinist and violist who is a member of the Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra.

    She has been equally busy in the movie studio, recording on a number of soundtracks, including The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Color Purple, Conspiracy Theory, The Day After Tomorrow, Disturbia, Domestic Disturbance, Enough, Flags Of Our Fathers, Letters From Iwo Jima, National Treasure, The Notebook, Spider-Man 2, Transformers, X-Men 2, and XXX.
