Teacher. I've been teaching in the Conservatories in Italy for years and just began collaborating with Siena Jazz University this year as well.

If I weren't a jazz musician, I would be a:

Professional dog walker! I love animals and before I discovered jazz I was planning on becoming a veterinarian. Now I think I'd be better off just walking the dogs and letting someone else do the messy work.

If I could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be and why?

Tough question! I'd say Muhammad Ali. He was an incredible person and inspiration to me.

Would you rather be a painter, dancer, writer, actor or movie director?

Writer. I began writing lyrics for some of my tunes a few years ago and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it! I've lamented the fact that the vast majority of standards talk about romantic love and nothing else. I've always felt that was so limiting.
