My Best Learning Experience

I've always been fascinated by how learning can be transferred across domains. I grew up playing music, and I'm constantly discovering ways in which my music education crosses over into my career. From problem solving to communication, many of my strengths come from these unconventional connections.

This has taught me that learning is about more than just the content, but about a way of thinking that comes from great teachers and great resources.
