"More than anything, I enjoy composing, song arrangement, and doing what I call piano ninja performance (which is just showing up at a place that has a lonely piano and start playing). Bass guitar performance is still my favorite when I play live shows with other musicians. Some of the instruments I play (some way better than others): piano, bass guitar, violin, mandolin, guitar, standard drum kit, and percussion."
