Aloha and thank you for visiting KauaiPianoMon. I am a pianist from New York City, the vibrant city that never sleeps. In 2013 I decided to move to a very different kind of island. Fortunate to call Kauai home, I am dedicated to creating a rich arts scene, integrating the whole world with the intimate culture and sounds of Kauai.
