I’ve tried so hard to not let weeks go by without a blog post, but work finally got the best of me.  Back on the weekend of the 4th of July I got hired to compose for an ABC Family Christmas movie, and I’ve been underground ever since.  The turnaround was tight and I had to write music at a blistering pace throughout the entire month of July.  It was an intense but completely...

Things are looking up as we storm past my 39th birthday, the last birthday before I make the jump into an age group that I’m not quite ready to admit I’m a part of.  This past year has been one of ups and downs physically, with some spectacular things happening at the 70.3 and 140.6 distances that also translated into some pretty negative physical repercussions that I’m still...
