I am thankful that music still plays a large part in my life, and it inspires me every day. Before I began to play an instrument I was obsessed with listening to music. I collected it, scoured for information about it, and spent the majority of my income on concerts and albums. I was hooked the moment I played well enough to recognize that I could play a song. Years later, I can only say that I am humbled that I have had many great musical opportunities and experiences, and I wake up each day continuing to try and improve my craft. It has brought beauty to all the other parts of my life, and as life continues to change and evolve for me in amazing ways, I am lucky to have it with me for the ride. Thank YOU for being part of it. The pleasure is mine.
