“My father passed away a couple of years ago and his nickname for me when I was a kid was Tiger. That’s why I decided that tiger would be the best choice for this one. It is a special one because it is the piece which honors a very important man in my life, my Dad.”

About the olive branches:

“They do have a story too. My dad  grew up on an olive farm in northern California so that’s where the olive branches come from, and obviously his last name is my last name.”
