Last night and today I had the most relaxed New Year's I think I've ever had. All this down time has gotten me restless. Currently thinking that I'm wanting to start another project with an announcement by January 1st, 2017. (Hopeful) When I get these urges I always try to find quotes that inspire me to make that next step a reality. Here are some that I have found today:

Well I haven't updated my blog in forever. I'd like to say I will be more dilegent about updating it but I can't make any promises.
2015 was a pretty big year for me. It has had many ups and downs. In a way I'm disapointed to see it go but I'm looking forward to another year.
In 2015 I have:
- hit my 10 year anniversary of being initiated into Phi Mu Alpha
- turned 30 years old
- taught from the box at Blue Devils d...

Wow I can't believe it's been a year since I have posted a blog!!! I guess I kind of forget about this thing. Not only that but I guess I stay pretty busy!!
Where do I begin... Well Erath's indoor drumline came out of a 8 year dorment period. I worked ensemble and wrote the show for this small group of dedicated musicians. It was a pleasure. The group did really well for its first year back! They won all but one show and were class champions at the Gulfcoast Regional championships. Grea...Read Full Post »

Wow it has been a long time since I updated my blog. I have been swamped. I guess that's a good thing, right??? I now have a few weeks to relax before indoor percussion design starts up. I'm really looking forward to working on a few new projects.
Anywho, I am considering myself extremely blessed. I have had the opportunity to work with a number of great programs over the years. 2011 was definitely the best season yet. The year started off early working w...Read Full Post »

The last few weeks have been so slammed that I forced myself to take the weekend off. One of my best friends, Josh Bourque, and I took off to the Sherburne Wildlife Refuge to go hiking and relax. We had a blast. I'll upload some pics here soon. (hopefully!)
Also landed another drill writing job today. A GREAT program in Colorado. Looking forward to working with another great group of people.
Now that I took a few days off I have to hit drill writi...Read Full Post »

Hey everyone. It's been way too long since I've updated. I've been absolutely swamped. Lets see what I have to update. I have the first 1:30 of Music City's show written. This music is so fun to write to! It'll definitely be a fun show to watch this summer. I can't wait to see it live!
My cousin's website is now up. He has one solo book and one concert band piece currently on it. Check out www.neilsimonmusic.com. He is one of my main inspirations...Read Full Post »

Wow I've been swamped!! Sorry I haven't had a chance to update. Last weekend I went up to the Music City Drum Corps camp in Tennessee.... man this corps is amazing. The staff is great and the members are SOOOO respectful. It was a real treat to meet tons of great people. It was a great weekend. Since then I've sat at my computer for a good while staring at Pyware and brainstorming about Music City's show.
Drill writing season is starting way earlier than last year (which is a great thi...Read Full Post »

This is going to be a busy week for me. I have a few more design projects on the verge of being signed up. ***Band Directors make sure you get booked up soon! I'm going to get back into the Insanity workout routine. Between getting caught up with work and being sick I haven't had much time to get any working out done for the past 3 weeks. I'll be driving up to Nashville at the end of the week for a Music City Drum Corps camp. On the way I'll be spending the night with a good friend from high ...Read Full Post »
