“While I was at Juliard, I swam in the world of Shakespeare and Chechov and August Wilson, so this technology thing was something that was so far beyond the scope of something that I thought I could do….I love music so much, I want to create it, I want to squeeze everything out of it. So I decided to come and take this journey and this has been an awesome journey, I’ve learned so much.”
