Well hello there. it’s been such a long time since i’ve talked to you. Now, believe me when I say that I had ever intention of writting to you this summer and sometimes…well, thigs just don’t work out the way you plan. Actually, nothing ever turns out the way you plan does it?
Well this summer was really interesting, I DIDN’T spend my time by a river relaxing with a good C.S. Lewis novel or play video games until the crack of dawn. Nope, myself and 3 other people started a company. It’s called Gradient Productions. You can check us out here and contact us if you’re interested in what we have to offer. So, creating a company can be expensive and time consuming so it’s nice that the four of us can actually stand eacher. In the midst of starting the company we have become well known around town as the “Creative company to go to when you want quality and a good price.” You can check out some of our full length pieces of work HERE (watch SILK: The story behind the espresso) and you can see our international award winning cmmercial HERE (Check out SILK Commercial #2).
Now, school just started this past monday and it’s been pretty hectic. I’m taking all music classes and that’s always amazing for sure, however it’s a little time consuming as well. The classes are going to be really good and I feel like I have a leg up because i’ve been playing music for so long.
In the midst of school i’m on the S.O.A.R. team. This is a fun experience, pays for my tuition and is a great opportuniy to 1. blog 2. vlog and 3. lead tours which is really awesome. Thisis a great job and i’m glad that I only am doing the part time portion because I don’t think I could handle full tie. Why you ask? well…
I also just recently got a job at BORDERS and it’s been really awesome. I think the thing I like about it most is the people that I get encounter and the people I work with are actually pretty cool. Also, there is not really a dress code, I like that i can be buisness casual and not have to worry about a uniform. I’m allowed to pretty much be comfortable every time I go to work…that my friends is worth it in it self.
and finally, but not least on ANY level! I have a girlfriend. We’ve been dating for just about 9 months and she is incredible. I miss her dearly because I don’t get to see her as much as i would want to. We haven’t gone on a date in a really long time and that’s one of my favorite things to do is to hang out with her. However, we do work together at Gradient Productions so that’s nice, however, it’s mostly all buisness stuff so it’s not really my girlfriend, she is more of a co-worker in those moments so as you could assume, it’s frustrating.
so, let’s see if I have covered my bases. This is what’s going on:
3 music classes
THERE IS ONE MORE THING I WANT TO TELL YOU!!!!!!
This weekened I’m getting away from it all! I’m heading to Los Angeles and I’m going to tour some schools. I’m looking at New York Film Academy (on the backlot of Universal Studios), University of Southern California (School of Cinematic Arts and Throten School of Music for Film Scoring) and finally, Chapmen University (the film program there)
I’ll be taking ot’s of pictures so be awaiting that. Maybe I’ll even make a vlog while I’m there. Who knows what will happen. That’s for stopping by and I hope to talk to you soon.
