Success can come in many shapes and forms. One person's success can be another person's failure. I guess to an extent success can be relative. I believe that I have been a really successful person over the last 4 years. I have taught 3 amazing drum corps. Going back to teach at the Blue Devils now (which still seems unbelievable!). Designing for a drum corps at the age of 25 (which also still seems unbelievable!!!!) I'm starting to get to a new level of success not only with what I already me...Read Full Post »

Yesterday was not the best day I've ever had. It also wasn't the worst but I guess for the last few months I've been spoiled to quite amazing days. It started when I was offered to be on the Blue Devil's visual staff. I can't even express in words how excited and honored I feel about this opportunity.

Sorry that it has been a few days since I have posted. I have been BEYOND busy. I landed a few more design jobs so I've been doing a lot of work with that.

So now that the website is nearly done, it's time to get started on some BD homework. Hopefully that doesn't take as long as the website did. A few hours of hard work on that then I'm going out to see Big Sam's Funky Nation tonight at Artmosphere in Lafayette, Louisiana. It should be a good time with good friends!

Well the 2010 fall season has long been gone but I can't help but think about on all the good times... as well as the challenging times. It was my first year working with the Erath High School Band since 2006. Lots had changed. All the members were different and I felt like an outsider at my own alma mater. I think it's safe to say that members never had to work as hard as they did on a marching show than in 2010. The show was tough (180 beats a minute for a good part of the show...Read Full Post »

Hey everyone! This is my very first blog ever! First off, thank you very much for visiting my page. It is still a work in progress but I'm happy with the way it looks for now. I'll try and update my blog as often as possible. It'll be a way for you to follow up on the way things are going during the summer and I'll offer random quotes, jokes, etc. at different times.
