Cameron's fascination with luthierie began when changing strings on his bass - hearing the clunk of a soundpost falling. The following journey to the repair shop was so facinating he was determined to learn the craft.
In 2003, he enrolled at the Violin Making School of America under the tutelage of Peter Prier, Charles Woolf, and Georg Meiwes. Following that, Cameron moved to Atlanta, Georgia and continued his education at Williams Gengakki violins and spent summers at the Oberlin Summer Restoration programs.
Cameron still resides in Atlanta and makes lovely violins today.
