Stay At Home Dad: Part 2

A year ago, heck, 4 months ago, I would have no answer to the question: "How do you entertain a baby?" Maybe I would have answered, 'Why do babies need to be entertained?

Resolutions: Professional Edition 2015

Okay, I know I kind of poo-pooed the idea of resolutions, but in the spirit of trying to make 2015 better than 2014 (I don't know HOW that could happen), here are a few resolutions I could improve upon in my professional musical life: 1.

Stay At Home Dad: Part 1.5

So far so good! Baby is happy and we had a lot of fun finding our toes, dancing to Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges, and playing with a crinkly lion toy.

One year ago, January 1st 2014, I was in Shanghai China playing with the Hollywood Concert Orchestra. It was a long day. Another cold theater,... Continue Reading →

Feeling Connected through the Arts

Since my last post, a rather dark post to be honest, things around here have gotten back on track. Positivity is in the air, the future looks bright, and life is good! I did several things to change my perspective, change my inner dialogue, that all led to feeling happier, more grounded, and more connected... Continue Reading →

Grounded

It's a little late, but allow me to wish all of you a Happy New Year, and a wonderful 2014!! As many of you know I recently returned from a 5 week orchestra tour through China. For 5 weeks I rode in busses, trains, and planes. I slept in very hard beds, ate oily and... Continue Reading →
