As a musician, I was born when I was five, when my parents gave me a toy piano for my birthday. It wasn’t long before I found my first loves: the keyboard music of Bach and Bartok that have influenced me ever since.
Perpetually fascinated by experimentation, I often enjoy collaborations with artists in other media and music genres. Indeed, fusion and exploration are core goals that I have nurtured over the years spanning the older and the newer, from classical and folk, to jazz and contemporary styles.
As a classically-trained pianist, I want to share that improvisation dates back centuries and belongs to our tradition. As a composer, I consider classical music a tremendous source of inspiration - one that is exciting and enriching outside the traditional context. As an educator, I would like students understand how much helpful classical skills can be, when applied to other genres.
Ranging at times from spacious and melodic, to loud and frenetic, my sound continues to change, along with my life, interests and inspiration..
