  • What have you learned today? That the same song can be composed in a number of different ways (in terms of some slight variations) and still work really well. 
  • What is one item on your "bucket list" and why? Perform and/or record a duet with Kelly Clarkson because she is one of my favorite artists and I think one of the best and most inspiring pop vocalists of all time..
  • Favorite track of all time? It depends on whether it's a slower or more up-tempo track, but in relation to ballads, "Bed of Roses" by Bon Jovi.
  • It's 3 am and the party is winding down, what track do you play to get everyone going again? "DJ Got Us Falling In Love" by Usher.
  • Who are your top 3 acts right now? Selena Gomez, Jason Derulo and Alessia Cara.
  • If you couldn't work in music, what would you be doing instead? Well, I already do a great deal of coaching/mentoring in singing, acting and piano in addition to performing and songwriting and if not this, I would probably be a full-time playwright and/or novelist.
  • What is your favorite live performance from an artist and why? I have so many that I love but one of my very favorites is a duet between Brian McKnight and Josh Groban of the classic song, "Bridge Over Troubled Water".
  • What was the last book you read? "Vocal Wisdom: Maxims of Giovanni Battista Lamperti".
  • Favorite thing on TV? "Pretty Little Liars" and more recently, I've been watching Disney Channel a lot, so I also love "Wizards of Waverly Place" and "Austin & Ally".

  • What is a fun fact about you growing up? When I was about three years old, I used to love listening to Stevie Wonder records and scratching the vinyl records (sometimes, a lot..) on the record player. This may be part of the reason why I have loved DJing since my teens.
  • What is your favorite quote? "Practice like you've never won. Perform like you've never lost." - Bernard F. Asuncion.
