I know it's been awhile since my last update, and for that I apologize. Many wonderful things have been happening here that I'm very excited about.
First off, I am very excited to announce that I ended 2012 by signing with my very first agent, the lovely miss Sarah Ilijanich with Fusion Talent Agency. I have already had some auditions come my way, and I'm looking forward to the many wonderful opportunities that this new adventure will bring to fruition.
Musically, I have been busy trying to re-engage myself and find new motivation post-college. I have been busy writing a lot of new songs, and I have begun going through the material that I worked on in my spare time through my three years of education. There are some great tracks that are nearly ready to be heard by all of your ears. My goal is to have an EP available by early spring, and to find as many opportunities as I can to get out and play live for you all!
Thank you all for your patience and support over the years. 2013 is going to be a good year!
