Interests

I have been a musician from a young age, and over the years picked up trumpet, trombone, vibes, and guitar, although my main instrument is the piano. I'm classically trained, but lately I've been exploring Jazz.


I also enjoy outdoor activities such as soccer, watersports, skiing, biking, and motorcycles.
