I’ve recently finished my first fully fledged wind ensemble piece, titled Fight or Flight. It was commissioned by the North Gwinnett Middle School Symphonic Band from Sugar Hill, Georgia. It will be performed in January 2013 at the Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA) Conference in Savannah.

Also, I’ve been asked to reorchestrate Cache 22 - a military drum piece I originally wrote for the Hellcats of the West Point Military Academy. This rearrangement has been adapted for a more conventional drumline instrumentation and will be performed by the University of Tennessee in Knoxville under the direction of Andy Bliss.
