Last time I wrote an announcement, life looked a lot different. I was still in college and the world had not ended yet.
I thought it was about time I give an update on my life. I graduated college in May of 2020, but was unable to walk the stage or celebrate in any way because of the global pandemic. Also because of the pandemic, opportunities have been quite difficult to come by. Over the summer, I busied myself with working on some freelance projects, as well as some personal projects.
It's currently September. I do have a job now, so that's great-- I'm a substitute private lesson teacher for voice and piano. I don't want to teach long-term, so I'm seeking out other opportunities as well. Each day, I dedicate at least 2 hours to working on music.
It's a really hard time right now. A lot of recent college graduates are like me, stuck at home with little to no opportunities becoming available, wondering when the time will come. I'm remaining diligent and productive despite the circumstances, however.
There are a lot of growing opportunities for film and game production in Texas, so for the short-term future, I'm hoping to land a gig doing music or audio for one of these companies. I did recently get connected with a game composer in Dallas who is going to introduce me to more local professionals. So there is hope!
In the meantime, I do have some projects coming out. I've been working on the final touches of Fallout: Darkest Hour, Vol. 3, which will be released sometime in October. I also have a personal EP in production. More info on that later.
Also, Parker Greenwood and I released a cover of Dusk Till Dawn on YouTube and Soundcloud. It turned out pretty well, so please go and check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JD9gZ_7Zg40
Take care, everyone.
