If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be writing, recording, and performing music all over the world. Since childhood I have dreamed to be a great musician that makes a huge impact in the music world. My music studies have included rock, jazz, classical, flamenco, and middle eastern music. To make sense of all that I have studied and continue to study, I have applied and have been accepted to Berklee College of Music where all these styles meet and where great musical projects are born. My goal is to attend this school, become proficient in all my subjects, form the band I always imagined, to study under one of my heroes (Simon Shaheen), and to complete my college education. I intend to bring all my education, knowledge, and refined abilities into a music project where the music contains qualities of all the music I love. I am having an electric guitar built that has qualities of a classical guitar, that has extra frets to produce the quarter tones found in some middle eastern music, and a whammy bar. I dream to have a large fan base that forms a community through the love of the music. I will communicate with this community through social media about actions for us to take as a whole, actions that will make positive contributions in the world like buying goods that are sweat shop free, cruelty free, spread information, and other such actions.
