Q: How did you become interested in music & performance? And what was it like to perform the first time on your own?
A: My interest in music and performance comes from my need to express my thoughts about life. Although, I've written songs since I was a child, mostly I only played music in classical performing groups. After college, I started to branch out and began playing in singer/songwriter circles. This empowered me to share the songs that I was writing. The first time I ever performed out as a solo artist, I had an immensely positive response from the audience. While I could elaborate on the ways I felt on stage, I'd rather just say, that I am grateful.
