We saw you at Little Island today. You are a remarkable musician!! Your passion shows in your energy while you play. It’s so impressive how you use electronic synthesizing with a classical string instrument and how you played your cello in every conceivable manner; bowing, plucking, drumming, twanging etc etc……wow! Aaaand so talented with how you arrange the music in your own eclectic way, BRAVO!!! BRAVISSIMO!! You’re a Light in this world, keep up the good works and kudos to you in your pursuit to be a healer!

My 9yr old son was impressed and asked to stay and hear your music this afternoon at herald square. As you played, I saw your joy. your faced showed you were feeling every note and it took you to a different place ( you were in the midst of the evening rush hour). May you be the 1st prolific musician doctor in history. You sound was a joy to experience.
