“Leaving Home” is a piece that illustrates the moment in time I left the city of Pittsburgh and opened myself up to the world. A moment which made me realize that everyone’s life is a journey. Breaking out of my home town really set the gears in motion for this to happen. So, in a sense, this was my first big step into the real world. It was the path to future adventures, understandings and experiences; therefore the key for me was leaving home.
