What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

The freedom you have while playing. The way it can change moods and lives of others. That while I am playing NOTHING ELSE in the world matters. I absolutely love teaching and seeing my students grow and succeed.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

That is tough to answer. Hard to pick one so I would say Buckethead, Flea and Lady Gaga. I have such a love for musicians who are not afraid to play what they feel, not be painted into one style and be themselves.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

Put half away towards my kids college. The other half I would donate towards students who can not afford to be involved in school band, afford lessons and need assistance getting an instrument. For me it's about giving back to others.
