Music, languages, travel. These are my trifecta of passions, and to me they are connected to each other in profound and meaningful ways. My love of music, of singing, of musical improvisation and exploration, led to a love of language through learning to sing in other tongues, and appreciating the nuances of a language and culture that were not familiar to me. My love of language naturally led to a love of travel, of exploring new places, befriending amazing people whose mother tongue and culture were not my own, and familiarizing myself with the unfamiliar. Many of my new friends became connected to me through music – truly the universal language!
