>Latest thing I'm most proud of: Making my pieces more readily available has been great. I love to see that the music is resonating with other people, and thinking that someone on the other end of the world could be playing a piece of music I wrote, interpreting it in their own way, is exciting.
>Next thing I'm most excited about: Hunkering down and finishing up Egg Suite work and designing a music book, complete with composer's notes, bonus material, and original artwork.
