Since a personal homepage really seems to be rather an ultimate ego trip, I might as well put my résumé up on here - and put links in while I'm at it, isn't that the point of an online résumé? So here it is, mostly complete all the way back to 1992, when I first picked up a viola and said, "Well, maybe I'll just try it for a little while..."
