When I'm not at the piano...

...I'm hiking, trail running, walking around the neighborhood, or finding any excuse I can to travel and get outdoors. My career is a driving force in my life, and spending time in the outdoors is my fuel. Music is a creative process, driven by beauty and connection. That's why I prioritize experiences that move me and get me moving. The impression I hope to give my students is that a well-rounded musical life also requires a well-rounded life in general.
