“I am addicted to the music of Gustav Mahler, modern technology, science-fiction films and barbecuing in nature with good company. My free time is reserved for my family and close friends. Free weekends are almost non-existent thanks to the viola… but, the love for the instrument and the love for music making prevail.”
