Updating this blog is a challenge - man, do I suck at it. Tips?
So, if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, or checked out my professional page on FB, you know that I made a major announcement recently.
I'm moving to Cali! Well, my family, too, of course...
Starting in September 2019, I will be returning to college teaching as an assistant professor, and director of jazz studies, at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly, for short). This opportunity was too good to pass up, and my family and I are adventurous, so we decided to go for it. I'm absolutely THRILLED to work with a fantastic faculty and brilliant students in a community that is just beautiful. It's equidistant between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and drivable to each. I'm nervous and excited to tackle a new gig and explore/join a new music community or two. Plus, I have the greatest family and we're excited to do this together!
There's a MERGE gig or two still lingering before the move, and I'm playing with Boulevard BB, Jim Lower JO, and Tumbao through July. There are still some chances to see me play in KC and Wichita before we load up a truck. The calendar will be updated shortly.
So, into the shed! Check out calpoly.edu to see where I'm going! And, thanks for your love and support!
