What is the funniest thing ever to happen to you?When I was in high school my parents were trying to help guide me in figuring out what major I wanted to study in college. I looked through the course catalog and found Advance Conducting 2 being offered during the summer session. I circled that one because it sounded interesting and fun. My parents thought it was so funny because I'd never taken Advanced Conducting 1 or any conducting before.

When and if you ever have children, what would you like to pass on to them?I'd like to pass on the ability to obtain freedom (and financial freedom) to them and the tools to turn whatever passions they have into lifelong pursuits.
