TO ME, LIVING IN ACADIANA MEANS…
I am allowed the opportunity to live in an area where culture isn’t just a buzz word we toss around, it is how we live, and it is who we are. There is an appreciation for life in Acadiana, and a real desire to stand out in the crowd. There is also a generosity that runs deeper in this community than I have ever witnessed in any other place that I have lived. This formula provides the perfect climate for great things to happen. As a professional musician, as a teacher, and as an executive in the business of the arts, this community gives me the opportunity to think outside of the box, and supports me in the contributions that I want to make to this community. I can’t think of any better place to be right now, than right here!
