"The longer I walk the creative path, the more I search to express myself in harmonious disciplines. As a percussionist, I have always felt the need for many colors in sound. As a visual artist, I need many textures for my eye and hand. As a singer, I often visualize the note before I hit it. As a word person and composer, I want a song to paint a picture in the listener's mind, and if their body moves to the music, all the better. More and more it seems to me that it is all the same clay: timbre, texture, color, movement, song."
