I am a jazz pianist and teacher making a career transition to software development. I'm passionate about teaching and learning and am fascinated by how our passive thoughts affect our actions. I'm a firm believer that in almost any field, once you have a grasp of the fundamentals, the goal is to remove mental roadblocks that inhibit us from doing what we already know how to do.
