What was the best advice you ever received? If you pick a career you love doing, you will never work a day in your life. Who gave you this advice? My Dad. And I truly believe in it, because although my job that I have right now isn’t a career, I still love what I do and to me it never feels like it is actual work.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Hopefully in 5 years I will be done with school and be pursuing my career as a music teacher, or audio engineer.

If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why? To get rid of any and every terminal diseases, because it is causing people to lose their loved ones. If you could invite 3 people to dinner who would they be and why? The three people I would like to invite to dinner would be 1. Pope Francis, because my religion is very important to me and who else would be better to talk about it to other than the Pope? 2. Doc Severinsen because I really look up to him as a trumpet player. 3. Batman, because Batman is great and he just completes the circle at the table.
