I started to play the piano when I was three years old. When I was seven I did something strange and played piano behind my back. I also played laying down on my back on the piano bench, like Amadeus Mozart my mom said. David Letterman asked me to come to NYC to be on his TV show. They liked my playing so well that they told me to come back for sweeps. Well, instead of that we went to Russia to get my brother (I was born in Russia too). When we were there, I got to play at the Children's Theater in Khabarovsk, Far East Russia. That was sweet! Igor, his wife and all the people there were awesome. My favorite thing to do is to write my own music. I started that when I was eleven years old. I guess it is a combination of classical, jazz and rock. I just get ideas and keep working with it. I think jazz is really fun to play. I also play some trumpet, percussion and guitar. I like to draw graffitti and might do that for a future album. My artwork consists of fused glass, watercolor, mixed media and photography.
