I've been playing the piano since 2nd grade. Music is part of me, but I veered from music and became a physician—a pediatrician, to be exact. It took a brush with cancer and a deep focus on meditation to return to the path that my inner self truly leads—the path of music. Now I've been on the Chicago music scene since 2015, and since 2015 have had a monthly at Serbian Village Restaurant in Chicago, and since the beginning of 2016 have had a monthly at 210 Restaurant & Live Music Lounge in Highwood. My group plays originals, standards and new standards, bringing to jazz some of the great songs of our youth.
