This is obviously my WordPress site. My goal for creating this site is not only to pass my class but also to get my work out there. I hope to reach an audience of music lovers. Excuse the very naked appearance of my blog but it will be getting better as I get a handle on all of this new technology. But for right now take a look around and if you’re really curious you can visit my Facebook page and twitter account. Heck, you can go and follow/like. The links are on my about page.
