I've relocated my woodshed to San Diego. My immediate plan is to find work for a while and consider cheaper options for music school (starting with CSUN and SDSU). Unfortunately, this means less practice time, but I'm also going to start playing out again. It will be nice to apply and refine my playing style that's been taking shape over the past year.
More updates to come as I settle into my new hometown, look for performing opportunities, and continue preparing for music school somewhere.
