When asked about his time at Purchase, he wrote, “Being at Purchase really helped me to create the career that I wanted for myself. I studied with many of the best teachers in the world and always found myself learning in a comfortable, open-minded environment. The proximity to the city helped me so that I could take what I learned in the classroom and apply it to the real world. I developed life-lasting relationships with so many of my professors and to this day I feel that I can reach out to them as a student and as a friend. Similarly, many of my Purchase peers remain as my closest musical cohorts and friends. The Purchase community feels like a family that I will have for the rest of my life.”“
