Happy Holidays, New Year, New Decade, etc. Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted, and a LOT has happened. I’m glad to say that I accomplished my goal of completing Grad school with a perfect 4.0 GPA.
Receiving my diploma
Our holiday break was packed with family, food, and presents. Cassie and I joked that we should film our travels and make a movie called “Five Christmases”. It was great to spend time with all of our various families despite all of the rushing around. We continued our tradition of visiting Milwaukee and hanging out downtown with my family.

Over the break, I was informed that my piece, ‘Opening/Unknowing’ was accepted to the University of North Carolina Digital Arts Festival this February!
My other major life change, other than Graduating, was starting a teaching position at the Institute of Art in Schaumburg. I am teaching ‘Audio Technology II’ and ‘Listening and Analysis’. It also doesn’t hurt that they just built a brand new multi-million dollar studio with an SSL console and the works. In fact, I am lucky enough to teach one of the classes in the studio itself!

Cassie has started her final semester at NIU and is working hard as usual. She is teaching two classes as a Teaching Assistant this semester, so she has her hands very full. She is also preparing for her Graduate show that will be coming up later in the semester. She is currently showing some of her work at the Pleasant Street Gallery in Dekalb and we enjoyed going to the opening last night.

As you might imagine, I am keeping myself out of trouble between my teaching position and the Bose store. Cassie and I are excited to be on the path toward our goals and know that there’s a lot of excitement still to come. My birthday is coming up this Sunday, and some friends are coming over to watch some football and have a good ‘ol time. For now, in the words of Edward R. Murrow: Good night and good luck.
