I began playing classical piano at the age of six and taught myself to play a variety of instruments using the internet as a learning tool. I am a composer, filmmaker and visual artist. After TED Global I have been traveling all over the world sharing my artwork and music with audiences to emphasize how we can use multimedia around us to further our talents.

An idea worth spreading
I think it is important that people realize that they have the power to do anything. People who are no different from us did everything that was accomplished and will be accomplished in this world. They believed in a vision that they had and executed it till it became a reality. Nothing is impossible. It sounds terribly clichÃ© but itâ€™s very true. Once someone realizes this, they will be released from any inhibitions and will truly be able to fly.
Creativity and passion needs to be cultivated and harnessed in order to create something unique. People like Steve Jobs used to maintain that Apple remain at the crossroads of the liberal arts and technology in order to create their innovative products whereas Tiger Woods uses his imagination and creativity to perform golf shots that stun the whole world.
We live in an era where we have the entire worlds knowledge readily available to us. We are extremely fortunate and blessed to be living in this day and age.
