2014

I bid thee a long and overdue hello. (wave, wave)

2014 was a collection of days that were educational, adventurous and life imprinting. While I don’t place a lot of value in giving praise or passing blame on a year, I do enjoy taking a moment to turn around and reflect on what just happened. AND, since I haven’t been the greatest at keeping up with my blog I figured I’d share a few highlights from 2014.


Harbin Hot Springs

Joshua Tree National Park

Touring with Flashdance The Musical

Virginia summers

Family vacation/sister’s wedding at the Amalfi Coast in Italy

…followed by an incredibly challenging scooter ride along steep winding cliffs with the new family.

Rockwood Music Hall in NYC and every show we played there this year… particularly the most recent one on the 14th of Dec. with a special guest appearance by the lovely Kimiko Glenn.

Making my Musical Direction debut… at my grade school alma mater. The New York Times never made it down to Alexandria but I’d say it was a smashing success.

‘A Lullaby’ – Official Video directed by my good friend Patrick Mandeville and featuring the lovely Ellenore Scott.
