Influences

I have always been a person who likes to read. Being fluent in several languages, reading books from various cultures about language and culture has always been a lot of fun for me. I have taught Business English in Europe for a long time and worked as a freelance translator. I started my website in 2007 to inspire guitarists and as an incentive for me to keep at playing music. At the same time, I started a blog called "Great Composers and Their Lives," a collection of articles focusing on what composers had to go through to give their gift of music to humanity. This has been a form of self-study as well as an informative resource for those interested. In 2008, a short article I wrote about my life as a guitarist was published in Classical Guitar Magazine. This was the incentive to write about my life in a bit more detail.
