If I could make a living doing what I love most, it would be spreading awareness of the power of music, any way I can. It has been the greatest positive force in my life, and I would not be the same person I am today without music. It gave me confidence, it has helped curtail public speaking anxieties. My love of music literally sailed me around the world, when I got the opportunity to play bass for a world leading cruise line.

Music changed me, and I want to impart the wisdom I gained through my experiences to change the world. Music has been a buoy in the ocean of enlightenment, and every time I have sunk into a lower level of function, music has been there to pull me up again. I am tethered to that buoy, and the best way I could change the world is through sharing what music has been for me. Through philosophical discussion, through performance, through lessons.

I want to tether as many people as I can to that fundamental love for music, using it as a foundation to teach many other concepts spanning many disciplines. From pure math, to physics, to humanities, to history, etc.

Since I picked up my first bass at fourteen, I have searched for world understanding through the prism of music. It has treated me well, and I want to help music treat other people well, too.
