A personal note.  As I look at the talent represented on this site, and the individual accomplishments, I am deeply humbled to be a part of such a community of musicians.  I feel a great deal of appreciation and gratitude towards Carl Gorodetzky, the Nashville String Machine, and the players that I have been fortunate enough to play next to for the last 20+ years.  (And continue to play with.)  I would not be the well rounded musician, or the person that I am today without their mentorship, artistic excellence, and professionalism.
