“I decided I wanted to be a musician was the same time I started the clarinet – and that was 24 years ago when I was 4. I come from a non-musical family, so why I decided to play music, I don’t really know but decided I wanted to play music. My parents took me local music shops to try every instrument out there and came across the clarinet and pretty much instantly decided that’s what I wanted to play. Started on a plastic C clarinet and then moved up to Bb pretty quickly. It was always something I enjoyed and I never thought about having a career – it just in some ways sort of happened. Before I knew it, I was doing what I enjoy as a career and that’s a cool thing.”
