In the piano business we get to meet and associate with interesting people and brilliant artists. I’ve shaken hands with Diane Keaton, had a beer with Ben Gazzara, met Jule Styne, Abe Burrows and Marvin Hamlisch. I’ve listened to Byron Janis and Walter Hautzig play the piano with only myself in attendance. I’ve sold a piano to Daryl Hannah, met Edgar Winter, Norah Jones and Chick Corea, and said hello to Michael Bloomberg and Pat Kennedy. I’ve ridden in a car with Paul Sorvino, and visited frequently with Henry Steinway. I consider myself exceptionally lucky and privileged to be doing something I love, surrounded by some of the great artists of our time.
