The arts have become the foundation for my life, using music as a way to de-stress, design as a career, and a general appreciation of all creative endeavors.
My experience at the Collective and with Dave, in general, prepared me for so many challenges in life that I did not see or appreciate until I was older. Learning a musical instrument and how to understand music, in general, is a very intimidating thing when you are just starting out and I thought of it as almost a lark when I went to my first lesson back in 1993. That day ended up being the beginning of the rest of my life. I learned I could do things I never thought possible.
