Strangest Fact About Me:  I can move my ears..?
Coolest/Oddest Musical Experience:  There was a time not so long ago where music was nowhere near my passion, until I had a director who encouraged me to play the piano. He played "River Flows in You" (Yiruma) for the class, and I was inspired to try and learn it. To this day, I still learn mostly by ear, and this memory is what first started my path towards studying music
