When did you decide you wanted to be a composer? Was it a childhood dream or an accidental string of events? 'Music is a big part of my family! My grandfather was a musician with the CBC, and both my father and my uncle are professional musicians. So becoming a professional musician wasn't so far flung in my household! I thought for the longest time that I would follow in their footsteps and become a performer, but it wasn't until applying for my Master's degree that my passion for composition became more obvious. My piano teacher at the time, Frank Falco, suggested I study composition, in an effort to stretch my musical abilities. Composition was pretty foreign to me, but I took to it immediately. I love being able to express myself creatively; to challenge myself, to be honest with the music, and to create a mood or feeling is a privilege that I never take for granted
