Bye Bye Oklahoma! To Buffalo and Beyond!

Composer Salon at Cameron University
After almost two years of Oklahoma living, which involved tornadoes, lots of dust, and the best hot sauce I have ever tasted in my life, it's time to relocate to Buffalo, New York. While in Oklahoma I enjoyed the Oklahoma Composer Association and presenting the Athena 60x60 at Cameron University. I played congas with the Cameron Baptist Orchestra and timpani with the Oklahoma Baptist Symphony. I talked about crowdsourcing at the Future of Music Symposium and met with writers at a writers club in Duncan. And now it is time to pack the bags and go north to a world of cold winters, blizzards, and more opportunity! 

2013 already starts so much better than 2012 ended, with a nation dealing with tragedy as my family dealt with its own illnesses and personal tragedies. Life can be so bittersweet, and when a tragedy strikes, you just hold your loved ones so much closer and appreciate each moment like its your last with them, because it may very well be. 

In 2013 there are already a few exciting projects in the mix. I finished the video for the Vox Novus 60x60 Presenter's Mix, will publish the novel version of Libertaria this summer, just signed on as film composer for an innovative sci-fi project that promises to make the nerd in me so very happy, and look forward to wrapping up production on Libertaria: The Virtual Opera. 

I don't know if I have any real new year's resolutions, but completing Libertaria: The Virtual Opera will fulfill two goals in my life: creating an opera and making my first feature film. Of course, I have a few other projects floating about my brain, but I think a novel, an opera, and a film are enough for this year, but who knows what 2013 will bring?
