Excerpt from Kollaboration interview:
What do you hope to achieve through the Kollaboration experience?
I feel it’s important to network with talented local Asians. I gain so much inspiration from their stories and gifts. Also, as an electric violinist, it’s rare to have an outlet to showcase my original music.
People would be surprised to learn that…
From the success of my musical career, I was able to fund and study martial arts. I attained 3 black belts (in Hapkido, Tae Kwon Do, and Judo) and I have instructed at 3 different schools in Chicago.
