Arnaud Quercy Arnaud Quercy

God, I Loved my job in banking, loved working with my colleagues globally, being surrounded by so many talented individuals with a combined brain power that defies the imagination. you know, feeling that the world is yours to take... You learn that success is all about managing change. I tend to think I was quite successful in it, delivering bigger projects every year passing by...oh yes, I enjoyed every minute of that life during 20 years. Yet, events forced me to reconsider the journey. I realised that I mistakenly thought success equalled happiness - but more importantly, I realised that the route I had paved for myself and and forced upon my family would soon meet a roadblock I couldn't remove. Something had to give. I and I felt I could loose everything... I must admit that re-setting your whole professional life to rescue your personal one at the age of 40+ is a humbling experience. I knew that this was now the time for a life changing decision, a free-fall, a re-boot. I took a big breath, and jumped on that summer of 2011.

I survived the landing... I'm partnering with my wife every single day to give a better chance to my special daughter, to help the other two to develop the best they can...and now, I have the time to focus on music, learning the piano the way it should be, i.e.. seriously, genuinely and with passion. ...and like an astronaut on a mission discovering a brand new world...I found happiness.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
