I have been playing both the piano and violin since I was a wee 5 year old thanks to my mom who was insistent on my music lessons. Although at the time I wanted to either be an Olympic medalist ice skater, a horse jockey, or an illustrator when I grew up. What can I say—I loved my crayons, horses, and skates. Thankfully music was in my genes and I ended up loving it and pursuing it. And after years of study, practice, and performing, I now enjoy molding my own world of artistic expression and creation – otherwise known as composing.
