Why did you choose your instrument / Pourquoi avez-vous choisi cet instrument ?
I wanted to be a rock star. When I was 5, my parents got me an omnichord and I figured out some Disney tunes on it. My dad plays a pretty mean electric guitar and he was able to show me a lot of wisdom on the keyboard extending from his rock and roll youth. I remember being upset when I found out that I was registered for CLASSICAL piano lessons.

What are your professional goals? / Décrivez quelques-unes de vos ambitions professionnelles.
I'm brushing up on my voice coaching and conducting skills a lot right now. I'm also writing the MCAT exam this summer so I guess I could end up going to medical school at some point. Like Gregory Oh, I firmly believe in keeping my options open.

What are your interests outside classical music / Avez-vous d’autres intérêts à part la musique classique ?
I really love kids. I babysit for my piano teacher at McGill every chance I get. I also really like science and ended up minoring in biology at university.

Who is your favourite classical musician? / Quel est votre artiste (classique) préféré ?
Emmanuel Ax

What has recently played on your Mp3? / Qu’écoutez-vous ces jours-ci sur votre Mp3?
The Koln Concert by Keith Jarrett

What is there about you that you think people might be surprised to know? / Y a-t-il quelque chose à votre propos qui est un peu surprenant ou hors de l’ordinaire?
I got my pilot license through Air Cadets when I was 17. My curls are also completely natural.
