Professional Affiliations & Activities

Chicago Classical Guitar Society

Interests/hobbies outside of music:
I enjoy Yoga and spending time with my wife and three kids. 

A few of my favorite things:
My favorite food would be Indian, Thai or anything spicy!

Why study music:
I study music because it feels dangerous like walking on a rooftop, yet I can do it without hurting myself or others. It also feels unpractical and my mind tends to be attracted to unpractical things. Its like someone asked me to go on this near impossible quest at an early age and the more I was warned about its possible peril, the more impassioned I became.
