What music are you loving right now?
Listening now: Petros Klamparis "Chroma"; Gilad Hekselman "Ask for Chaos"; Noname "Room 25"; the Bach English suites I'm struggling through on piano, and the K-Pop my kids are obsessed with.
Why do you love working at SAE?
I find it a constant source of inspiration to work with students who are finding their creative identity and place in the world.
What is the best fun fact about yourself?
I like puzzles, boxing, walking, and trying new and unusual foods.
How do you like to spend your time outside of SAE?
Playing guitar, cooking (mostly south indian food), reading philosophy and detective novels, playing Polytopia instead of going to the gym, and hanging out with my kids.
What is your life motto?
Do one thing well.
What is your dream holiday destination?
Recurring dream, recurring destination: Chennai, India, for the food and for the music festival.
Are you working on any exciting projects at the moment?
Playing with my quintet at Doo-Bop, performing some songs I wrote for the amazing vocalist Merinda Dias-Jayasinha. The songs are from a song cycle about 18th c. sail travel, lost love, shipwrecks and drowning. If I can ever finish writing it, there will be a CD probably next year.
