Hello everyone,

It's been awhile, I hope you've all been well! I wanted to say hello and send you an update on life for the past year:

I recorded an album that's been the culmination of my life. It's our landrus kaleidoscope quintet plus string quartet, with Ryan Truesdell conducting. It's entitled Mirage, and was released on BlueLand Records June 25th 2013.

Here's a preview of the music:

I've been very busy this past year touring with Esperanza Spalding's Radio Music Society. It's truly been one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I'm playing bari sax, bass clarinet, and tenor sax with her.

Thank you to everyone who's helped me along this journey.
