Meet the Physicist Who Drums for the Met
The principal timpanist of The Metropolitan Opera was a professional nanotech scientist for a decade before he won the Met audition a little over four years ago.
And now he's started a blog explaining how that happened.
I attribute it to two main things — two major changes I made roughly ten years ago:
First, I decided I wasn’t going to have any attachment to an outcome.
Second, instead of chasing specific outcomes, I embraced a process of continual refinement."
