2012

What a year!!!! 2012 started out in India (my second home)….from there I returned to Miami…..moved back to DC….taught a bunch of amazing students……traveled all around……took a million pictures……re-connected with old friends and made new ones…..took leaps forward as well as back…..made great decisions….and great mistakes…..

THANK YOU to everyone I’ve worked with/shot/befriended over the past year…..you guys have ALL been so inspiring and encouraging…..words cannot say enough…..Special shout-out to my parents, best friends, Groove and family….Spencer and the bar staff….the whole Gogol Bordello team…..Jon, Olivia, and everyone at The Vinyl District…..Kevin and everyone at Chunky Glasses….Chris and all of  HFS…..Paul from 24-7 Entertainment…..my students and fellow teachers…..my teachers in India and Miami for instilling the strength and dedication to keep up with my daily practice through all of the crazy nights (without which, NONE of this would be possible)……the 9:30 club……the Fillmore…..every venue, musician, LD, audio engineer, manager, crew member, photographer, security, bartender, bus driver, cab driver, etc etc etc……

Final thoughts? Cherish your friends and family, never forget where you came from, find something that brings passion and fulfillment to your life, stay true to your principles, love and let yourself be loved……
