Q: What is your favorite song to play?
There’s no such thing as favorite song to play because music is a forever morphing process.
Q: What has been one of your greatest moments of your career?
Greatest moment was performing Rachmaninoff‘s 2nd concerto with the long beach symphony in a show with Ben Vereen.
Q: Is music all you do? Or do you have other business ventures?
Music is all I do because there is an endless amount of parts in it… playing, practicing, composing… etc.. Naturally my compositions are always being changed by whatever I am listening to or studying. This is why I sound different from what I sounded like 5 years ago.
Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?
In 5 years I should have completed my doctorate and hopefully I will be conducting or being and MD for one of the main shows on the Las Vegas strip.
Q: Define yourself in one statement.
I am one who is pushed by whatever challenge is thrown at me then morphed it into sound and emotion.
