As a kid I had two big loves – my cello and my dog. I played cello for
close to 20 years and even included an electric cello studio produced
audition tape with my application to college. We got the family dog
when I graduated from elementary school (and music camp!).
I moved to NYC shortly after graduating from college. For years I wanted
to get my own dog but the timing wasn’t right. Finally, in July of 2001
I brought home a new puppy – Tahvo – a Lagotto Romagnolo. Like the
electric bass later on, he changed my life — adding a special balance
to day to day living in the big city.
