Sinopse

Currently an executive for a start up company. I studied piano with private teachers starting at 5 and by 7 I was studying a private teacher attached to a conservatory. My private classical teachers included those trained in the Liszt method. I was being groomed to be a concert pianist but at 16 I set aside the piano and didn't pick it up again until I was in my 40's. It's taken 7 years of patience and practice to get my playing skills back. And that's what you hear. I write and perform all the songs. I hope you enjoy.
