“In the past I was a trumpet player, and I’m very seriously thinking about taking that up again; that’s what they call a comeback player. I did well in high school — going to state solo contest, being first chair in a band at a school of 3,000. But I realized that I could not make it to the top without seriously changing the way I was playing. I discovered how the world’s best trumpet players play, and it’s fundamentally different than how the average person plays. So it’s just another challenge right now that I can go after.”
