First Interest in Music: When I was 3, I used to get a newspaper and put it down in front of the TV and play like it was a piano while my parents watched Liberace. Guess the black and white paper reminded me of the keys on a piano!

First Time on Stage: I was 13 and in 7th grade. I played the part of Paul McCartney in a skit for an assembly.We wore Beatle wigs and pantomimed "I Saw Her Standing There." The girls screamed and yelled as if we were the Fab Four and I knew right there that I wanted to be a musician! And the rest is history!
