When I'm not dreaming and writing about sea lions, I play some trumpet. For ten years, I recorded and toured throughout North America, Europe, and Australia with the Klezmer Conservatory Band, including with Itzhak Perlman's "In the Fiddler's House" project, which resulted in a PBS documentary and two best-selling recordings.
