If I’ve never met you before, what do I have to know about you?

My first love is music. When I was in high school, I wanted to be a professional musician. I was naïve, but dedicated. Now I play piano in bands and do solo engagements and also musicals such as Annie, Spelling Bee, Company, and many more in community theatre and professional theatre in the Washington, DC area. My second love is mathematics. In high school I thought that Mr. Rhea, my geometry teacher, was the coolest teacher in the school. Now I am living the dream! I teach math daily, and play music in the community. I find both fields stimulating. I think that music is emotionally satisfying, and mathematics is intellectually stimulating.
