What’s your greatest moment on the ukulele?
Being crowned champion as a teen at the ‘Festival of Lights,’ Toronto, Canada. I was the youngest uke in Ontario at that time and I remember dancing on the stage at the festival in my ukelele playing ‘I’m So Glad’ by Marvin Gaye. I was actually a good uke when I was younger because my playing was not too good. I would learn so many things from those who played better than me. One of my favorite plays, is actually about my father (who was a great uke player) when he started to teach me.
What are are a few ukelele songs?
‘Little Girl’ by the Beatles, ‘Take Over The World’ by Stevie Wonder, ‘I’d Rather Die than Dream of You’, ‘The Lady is a Lady’ by Diana Ross, ‘All Star’ John Lennon, ‘Good Times Lucky Boys’ by Elvis Presley, ‘Rock Around the Clock’ by Stevie Wonder, ‘Don’t Come Around Here No More’ by Diana Ross, “Lucky Stretchers” by Prince, ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’ by Stevie Wonder.

I think the music from the festival has affected me in a great way, and I have played on the festival floor for many different artists.
Can you make ukuleles for people you don’t know?
I can make ukuleles that people I didn’t know already know. To me this is my hobby, so if I’m not making the things you know, but I’m still doing it, I’m doing it right.
Tell me about the last album you wrote.
I wrote my first album two years ago – it was called ‘Garden.’ It’s really about the idea of ‘good times’. My last album was inspired by two of my best friends who died. I always write songs about my friends who have passed away.
