My journey with music started during my early stages of my childhood . My first passion to listen to music and songs. So, whenever I go out with my family , I used to stop at any moment that I saw a piano or a musical instrument. I just wanted to play on it . I would tell my family to leave me with the piano .

I believe that inside everyone, there are so many pieces of music , and the music not constrained to certain people , music is everywhere and at every moment .

Do you have any aim/ social cause that you meant to spread  through your compositions?

Not always, but  I do believe the musician shouldn’t be separated from his society. Sometimes I do get inspirations for meaningful musical compositions from some social aspects.

The concept of the album (Winter Stories) is derived from moments of my childhood during winter season . So I tried to translate these memories, which related to winter in my music . I never expected to win an award for this album . I think it is beneficial for the album and it represents audience influence towards the pieces.

I don’t have something specific, but sometimes I need really comfortable circumstances for music composing .

My family always supports me and I think this is enough to lead me to the status of satisfaction .
