I am an artistic, creative spirit who tries not to take life too seriously. My passions lie in music (classical as well as popular) and movies. My work is in creating, performing, teaching, or otherwise engaged in either art form. My involvement in these things is not just about earning a living. . . it’s who I am. We all have a purpose in life and one that is well-lived finds that purpose. I’ve been told that my excitement for what I do is infectious. I hope that’s true.
