But seriously, after three grueling years of long days, short nights, lots of composing, writing, studying, and more, I am now a Doctor!
It's been a fantastic experience here in Miami and I am thankful for all the opportunities I have had here. Who would have thought that I'd be earning my sole award from Downbeat Magazine for Recording and Engineering? Not me, that's for sure. What an amazing program here.
Now it's on to my summer travels. I'll be in Frankfurt, Germany catching up with some old friends (and some are OLD friends these days, haha!). Then it's off to Trieste, Italy for the remainder of the summer. There I'll be teaching a workshop at the Conservatorio di Trieste as well as gigging and teaching. My old schoolmate from City College - drummer Gasper Bertoncelj - has been organizing a tour in Slovenia. Zoran Mastrojevic, another colleague based in Croatia, has also organized a workshop and some gigs in that part of Europe.
Then it's back to Miami to a new home and looking for work. Stay tuned....
