About music: “Everybody in my family played an instrument of some kind. I learned to read music in 4thgrade. I’ve played [clarinet] since 5thgrade … I’m learning mandolin. I was a music major … I like anything by Ralph Von Williams. When I did my senior recital, I did a piece by him that he wrote for violin, and I did it in clarinet. It was really pretty and fun to play.”
