Jazz & Nature
”I do a lot of my best writing after having spent time in nature. The more I’m in the city, the more the craziness sinks into you. Getting out into the woods helps to clear my mind.
”I see a lot of parallel between the sustainability community and the jazz community, trying to protect a thing that you believe is sacred.

A Career in the Arts
”It’s been a strange path, and nowhere along that path was I expecting to get the next step. Whatever that next step was. I was always happy to be wherever I was. I never thought I would go to a 4-year school for music. Then I started getting gigs and making money playing music. Then onto my masters at Temple. I’ve always felt very grateful for every step in the journey.
”A life in the arts is a marathon. There were many times where I felt that I 100% knew what I was doing, and the next day felt like I had no idea what I was doing. Think of it as a life journey with ups and downs and keep moving forward.
